For our latest lunchtime seminar we’re looking forward to welcoming author and academic Liang Hong 梁鸿 to Leeds to discuss her work, focusing on the significance of ideas of the ‘village’ and of rural China.

Liang Hong currently teaches Chinese literature in the creative writing department of Renmin University, and has conducted a book-length interview with author Yan Lianke, The Witch’s Red Chopsticks (巫婆的红筷子, 2002). She has published works of literary criticism, and two books of non-fiction about her hometown: China in Liang Village (中国在梁庄, 2010) and Leaving Liang Village (出梁庄记, 2013).

The event is free and open to anyone. It will be followed by refreshments in the Cromer Terrace common room. Please register on our Eventbrite page.

Please note that the talk will be in Chinese, with English translation.
