Cosmopolitan publics: Anglophone print culture in semi-colonial Shanghai

Research output: Book/ReportBook

29 Scopus citations


Cosmopolitan Publics focuses on China's "cosmopolitans"-Western- educated intellectuals who returned to Shanghai in the late 1920s to publish in English and who, ultimately, became both cultural translators and citizens of the wider world. Shuang Shen highlights their work providing readers with a broader understanding of the role and function of cultural mixing, translation, and multilingualism in China's cultural modernity. Shen's encompassing study revisits and presents the experience of Chinese modernity as far more heterogeneous, emergent, and transnational than it has been characterized until now.
