Europe’s New Chinese Literature. Authors of Chinese Origin Writing in French and German A Comparative Analysis

  • Europe’s New Chinese Literature deals with literature — poetry, theater and prose — by authors of Chinese origin using German or French as modes of expression. Only in the last decade the majority of their works was published and became visible to a larger audience, with Dai Sijie and Shan Sa in France and Luo Lingyuan in Germany. The thesis attempts the first comprehensive analysis of this literature using a comparative approach. It scrutinizes the discursive strategies with which the authors of this group position themselves in the literary field. The strategies differ insofar as the writers for example adopt Western stereotypes of China in their works or want to function as cultural ambassadors for China.
