Dear Members,
Greetings from Lingnan University, Hong Kong!
I am delighted to invite you to the international conference entitled “Western Literary Theory and Chinese Literary Scholarship” held by the Centre for Humanities Research and the Department of Chinese of Lingnan University, which is scheduled to take place at our University on 23-24 May 2019.
Call for Papers
The conference invites proposals for individual papers that initiate in-depth dialogues between Western and Chinese literary theories. The dialogues should illuminate the unique features of each as well as their shared insights into issues of universal interest from comparative perspectives. We welcome papers that evaluate the application of Western critical theories to the studies of modern and premodern Chinese literature. We will also consider original essays introducing latest Western critical theories that may throw new light on intrinsic and/or extrinsic aspects of Chinese poetry, fiction, drama and other genres.
A good number of papers will be selected and peer reviewed for possible publication in Prism: Theory and Modern Chinese Literature, a Duke University Press journal (to be launched in 2019), either as themed clusters in a regular issue or as a special issue, in the fall of 2020.
Please e-mail individual paper abstract (300 words), accompanied by biographical notes, to by 31 December 2018. The result of acceptance will be communicated on 15 January 2019. Full papers are expected to be submitted by 31 March 2019.
Language: English
No registration fee is required. Food and refreshment will be provided for all speakers. Accommodation will be provided for speakers from outside Hong Kong.
You are most welcome to join the conference. For registration details, please contact Mr. Chris Song of The Centre for Humanities Research at Thank you.
It would be our honour if you would accept this invitation or invite other interested colleagues to join. I look forward to your active participation and taking our collaboration among the Alliance members to the next level!
With my warmest wishes,
Professor Ka Ho Mok
Lam Man Tsan Chair Professor of Comparative Policy
