Topic: How do we understand pre-Qin literature and documents?
The study of pre-Qin literature begins with solving the problem of documents. Unlike later dynasties, pre-Qin is divided into the Xia, Shang, Zhou, Eastern Zhou, and Warring States stages. In each stage, the nature and characteristics of the documents were different, and could not be summarized in general terms. There was no clear division of disciplines in the pre-Qin period, and the discipline of literature was not established; therefore, it is not possible to conduct research on the concept of post-Qin literature. In today’s academic research in literature, history, and philosophy, it is necessary to understand the nature and characteristics of pre-Qin literature.


The lecture will be conducted in Mandarin with simultaneous interpretation into English. Please register for the forum by 1 Dec 2021 (Wed) via https://umac.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9NVi6G3QVUBcK90
