The Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation International Sinological Center cordially invites you to this year’s opening lecture by:
Professor Victor Mair (University of Pennsylvania)
Sinophone and Sinosphere: Implications for Language and Literature in the 21st Century,
Lecture will take place on Friday, January 18, 2019, 10.00, at CCK-ISC, Celetná 20, room 118.
It has scarcely been two decades since the concept of “Sinophone” was launched, so it is still a young concept and in need of clarification. To who does it apply, and how does it relate to the notion of “Sinosphere”? We will focus primarily on linguistic and literary issues, but will also take into consideration political and cultural aspects of the Sinitic, which subsumes both Sinophone and Sinosphere.
