Event Date: 06/11/2014 17:30 - 19:00

Over the past fifteen years, the Internet has become a major medium for the production and consumption of Chinese-language literary texts across a wide variety of genres. This lecture looks at the phenomenon of `Internet literature` (wangluo wenxue) in China, focusing on how it has brought about innovations in aeshetic practice and how it has challenged the state-driven publishing regime.

This free lecture will be given by Professor Michel Hockx from SOAS, University of London.
