This talk will address the problem of literary and historical narrative in China’s twentieth century. Revolutionary time is a particular kind of time, requiring different kinds of narrative. In an analytical pass through a century of narrativizations/re-narrativizations, the talk will examine how successive revolutionaries and writers attempted to answer the constantly posed and re-posed radical question of “what is to be done” (shto delats? 怎么办?).

This lecture is part of the lecture series New Perspectives on Modernity in China.
