Lorenzo Andolfatto publishes article on CLEAR

Apr 04, 2019

Dr. Lorenzo Andolfatto, HCTS postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Joachim Kurtz´s HERA project, had a contribution published on CLEAR, the western-language periodical devoted to Chinese literature. His article “Futures Enmired in History: Chun Fan’s Weilai shijie (1907), Biheguan Zhuren’s Xin jiyuan (1908) and the Limits of Looking Backward” questions to what extent literature is able to prefigure the future by looking at some minor specimens of early modern Chinese fiction through the lens of Fredric Jameson’s writing.
