講題: 文學與技術:重讀《老殘遊記》

除了以科幻為主題的小說之外,文學與科學技術之間能有什麼樣的連結呢?《老殘遊記》被視為中國最後一部重要的古典小說,與科學與技術之間的關係是什麼呢?我們如何從技術的角度去理解《老殘遊記》過去一個世紀以來被稱頌的細緻的景物描寫及其對「清官誤國」的批判呢?本次演講即是希望回答這些問題。

Hui-Lin Hsu received his B.A. and M.A. from National Tsing-Hua University, and Ph.D. from Columbia University in 2010 with an emphasis on Ming-Qing literature, and joined the Department of Chinese Literature at National Taiwan University in 2011. His research interests include Ming-Qing vernacular fiction, literary exchange in East Asia, as well as visual and print culture in late imperial China. He is now working on a book manuscript on the late Qing novel The Travels of Lao Can, which explores how the novel embodies the most significant cultural, political, and intellectual changes in late nineteenth and early twentieth century China. His other publications are concerned with vernacular short stories, chuanqi, and literary adaptations during the Ming-Qing transition.
