Sinophone Studies: A Critical Reader

Sinophone Studies: A Critical Reader

Ratings: (0)|Views: 830|Likes:

The chapter, "What Is Sinophone Studies," by Shu-mei Shih comes from Sinophone Studies, a definitive anthology exploring Sinitic-language cultures born of colonial and postcolonial influences. Essays by such authors as Rey Chow, Ha Jin, Leo Ou-fan Lee, Ien Ang, Wei-ming Tu, and David Wang address debates concerning the nature of Chineseness while introducing readers to essential readings in Tibetan, Malaysian, Taiwanese, French, Caribbean, and American Sinophone literatures.
