Conference – Ecowriting: Tradition and Modernity

Posted by

Chinese ecological writing is a burgeoning field of study and it has attracted increasing attention both in academia and among common readership. Traditional Chinese wisdom is a rich but under-explored resource, from which intellectuals may find inspiration to address modern ecological crisis. This conference brings leading scholars of Chinese ecocritism to discuss constructive ways, by which people bridge tradition and modernity in dealing with human relationship with nature. Chinese ecological writings will be examined through the frameworks of traditional philosophies and modern conditions.
