Chinese Encounters with Western Theories
Journal Issue Pages: 116 Volume 79, Number 3 Published: September 2018 An issue of Modern Language Quarterly
Like so much in today's China, literary theorists have met Western work with a mix of importation, imitation, adaptation, and confrontation. This special issue reaffirms and discusses theories of literature rooted in Chinese culture. Authoritative responses from American, European, and Chinese's leading scholars offer a polemic debate alongside historical contextualization of the encounters with Western theory. The result is a vivid snapshot of cross-currents and competing ideologies.
