Shih-chen Chao adopts Bourdieu’s notion of the literary field to analyse Qidian Zhongwen Wang as a case study to demonstrate the shift in the roles of various agents in the production and consumption of online literature. Lynn Struve discusses ethical issues in biographical historiography through the case of Huang Chunyao and addresses the questioning of selfhood and empathy in postmodern humanistic discourse. Hao Gao explores early Chinese perceptions of Britain prior to the 1840s, arguing that while the Qing government was reasonably well-informed about Britain, it was nonetheless largely unprepared for serious aggression from Britain.
