Event Selection
Taking place in Singapore, we welcome SOAS alumni to join Professor Michel Hockx, Director of the SOAS China Institute, for a talk on 'Internet Literature and publishing reform in China'

Since the late 1990s, Chinese literary enthusiasts have explored new spaces for creative expression online, giving rise to a modern genre that has transformed Chinese culture and society. Ranging from the self-consciously avant-garde to the commercially popular, web-based writing has introduced innovative forms, themes, and practices into Chinese literature and its aesthetic traditions. Hockx conducted the first comprehensive survey in English of this phenomenon, and will present his findings in Chinese for the first time in this lecture. His emphasis will be on the challenges posed by online publishing to the reform of the state-regulated print publishing system, taking into account recent policy changes.

RSVP is necessary, please email chsqgh@nus.edu.sg to register your attendance.

*Please note, this talk will be in Chinese*.
