Contouring the World in Qing Dynasty Women Novelists’ Imagination

Chinese women before the 20th century wrote fictions in the form of tanci prosimetric narrative. These works, by portraying heroines who achieve great accomplishments, convey how the women authors imagined not only court politics but China in the international context. Fantasy may they be, women’s tanci foretell how Chinese women would cross boundaries starting from the late-19th century.

 

Speaker: Prof Hu Siao-chen

Prof Hu is Distinguished Research Fellow at the Institute of Chinese Literature and Philosophy in the Academia Sinica, Taiwan. She is the author of Burning the Midnight Oil: The Rise of Female Narrative in Early Modern China (2003), The Southwest in Ming-Qing Literary Imagination (2017), and City Landscape and Daily Life in Ming-Qing Narratives (2019).
