Paper Republic and Han Dong in the UK-3
By Nicky Harman, published
The last literary event we organised took place in Edinburgh, Scotland on 27 April 2009. Tommy McClellan invited Han Dong to give a lecture on contemporary Chinese literature at Edinburgh University. (Nicky Harman translated it, and we read it in tandem, a paragraph in Chinese and a paragraph in English.) After questions, there was a translators' discussion, including Esther Tyldesley and Eric Abrahamsen. Click here for the lecture in Chinese and here for the English translation.
