The Modern Chinese Literature and Culture Working Group was established within the Liu Institute in spring 2020 to provide a forum for faculty fellows and invited speakers to share and receive feedback on new scholarly work. Founding faculty fellows are Tarryn ChunXian WangIris Ma, and Michel Hockx

The group reflects the University’s growing strength in modern Chinese literature and culture and potential interest in this area from faculty and students across a number of disciplines. Group members meet monthly for presentations by faculty and invited speakers.
