We’re delighted to welcome Minjie Chen, expert on Chinese children’s literature, and librarian at Princeton University, to give our key-note speech. And we’re also lucky enough to be joined by Helen Wang, Cao Wenxuan’s English translator; Katharine Carruthers, Director of the UCL Institute of Education (IOE) Confucius Institute for Schools; the translator Anna Gustafsson Chen; Valerie Pellatt, expert on Chinese translation and Chinese children's poetry and nursery rhymes, and others involved in teaching and translating Chinese fiction.
The event is free and open to all, but please register by Monday 27th June. Refreshments and lunch will be provided, and there'll also be a bookstall from Blackwells on contemporary Chinese literature.
