Linking Ancient and Contemporary: Continuities and Discontinuities in Chinese Literature is a collection of essays which stems from a project of cooperation between the Department of Asian and African Studies of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and the Department of Chinese Language and Literature of Peking University. The first conference was held in Venice on 21-22 March 2013, the second will be held in Peking University on 14-16 October 2016. The volume reflects the desire to compare and integrate different approaches to Chinese literature, showing how, in different epochs, traditional intellectual and literary values have been repeatedly criticized and rejected, yet have often resurfaced in many different ways and have been reinterpreted.
