On Modern Chinese Literature (1976-Present) Literature and Books

on_modern_chinese_literature_1976present


Delve into the fascinating world of Chinese literature and the literary movements that are taking place in China today.

If it's your first time joining us, then this seminar is completely FREE!

Are you a great lover of literature? Do you constantly search for new authors to read and new places to discover through fiction?

Then join us for our two-part series on Modern Chinese Literature, where we'll be unpacking the major literary movements that took place in China from 1911 to the present. Along the way, we'll get to know a few of the most prominent writers in modern Chinese history and read excerpts from their work.

In the second part of our series, we'll be concentrating on Chinese literature and the literary movements that took place from 1976 to the present day. Many of these literary movements, particularly those immediately after 1976, were in direct response to the trauma of the Cultural Revolution. These young authors used their work as a way to come to terms with the horrors they had witnessed.

Towards the end of the seminar, we'll also be taking a closer look at two phenomenons taking place in Chinese literature today: the significance of online literature, and the rise of science fiction.

Alongside discovering new authors and reading some great pieces of work, you'll also have the opportunity to share some book recommendations and discuss your literary passions as part of our two interactive discussion sessions.
