Ning (English and comparative literature, Tsinghua U.) examines the phenomenon of globalization as a cultural and critical concept from a Chinese perspective. In this collection of papers he describes the Chinese cultural and intellectual strategy toward globalization, its relationship to translation studies, and its impact on Chinese literature. He describes the popularity of English, the move away from colonialism in Chinese critical discourse, and the transition of translation to a science. By way of example he also offers two unique critical papers, one on how the work of Whitman relates to modern Chinese literature, and the other on the translation and reception of the works of Ibsen in China.
