Are we kidding ourselves we even understand works in translation? Is great national literature universal because it is great, or great because it is universal? Another Free Word Centre event, London

By Nicky Harman, published

The New International? Literature in an age of ‘globish’, talk on Thursday 20 October 2011, 7.00pm until 9.00pm, Free Word Centre, 60 Farringdon Road, London EC1R 3GA. For details see here. Not strictly Chinese-focussed and nothing to do with me, but I promised I'd pass the news on. It sounds very interesting.
