Worlding Hong Kong Literature: Dung Kai-cheung’s Atlas

June 13, 2018 - 15:15-17:00

Heidi Yu Huang (PhD Lyon), Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou, speaks on the topic “Worlding Hong Kong Literature: Dung Kai-cheung’s Atlas”. Huang will discuss the concept of “worlding” spatially and temporally, but also the origin and purpose of the city-making narrative in Dung Kai-cheung’s half-fictional, half-historical novel Atlas: The Archaeology of An Imaginary City.

The lecture is a part of the Bernhard Karlgren Seminar Series at the University of Gothenburg. Geographically the seminars revolve around China and Chinese traditions, but with a pronounced interest in the larger methodological and theoretical questions that Sinology shares with the Humanities. The invited scholars present their works-in-progess: cutting-edge research in the intersections of Sinology and Anthropology, Archaeology, Comparative Literature, Linguistics, Religious Studies, and Translation Theory. Lectures and seminars are usually filmed and can be found online.
