Harvard University scholar shares his insights on new horizons of Chinese studies

哈佛大學教授剖析中國研究新視野

The Department of History, the Department of Chinese Language and Literature and the Mr Simon Suen and Mrs Mary Suen Sino-Humanitas Institute jointly presented a distinguished lecture delivered by Professor David Wang, the Edward C Henderson Professor of Chinese and Comparative Literature, Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations, Harvard University. 
 
Professor Wang, a major leader in the field of Sinophone literature, gave the lecture, themed “Sinophone/Xinophone Studies: New Horizons of Chinese Studies”, on 19 September. In contrast to some scholars in the field of Sinophone studies, who are more inclined to apply theories of post-colonialism and post-imperialism, Professor Wang advocates the importance of historical perspectives in order to yield more fruitful research.
