  • About the Lecture

    The 1990s is a watershed that witnesses the Chinese working class’s change of fortune. There used to be countless literary figures created about the workers, but at this fatal moment, these narratives dimmed out as the more glorified figures emerged. Then they went to the countryside, went into business, or found themselves a secure job, but any step they took was a subversive choice. Therefore, when we are talking about the 1990s, the working class, the factories, their culture and prides, their lives and these sudden changes are in fact important aspects that cannot be neglected. As the narrative changing from “we” to “they”, in the world of literature, how should we tell the stories about these workers living in the 1990s’ dilemma?
