Oxford China forum

At Oxford this weekend, attending the annual Oxford China Forum. My literature panel yesterday afternoon went very well indeed. I shared a stage with well-known writer Sheng Keyi, the author of the Northern Girls, among other things, and veteran Swedish translator Anna. G. Chen, who has translated works of Mo Yan, Yu Hua and so on, into Swedish. The session was skilfully moderated by Xiaoning Liu from SOAS. And it was so well organized. It was a full house at Oxford Union. How satisfying to see the young people keenly filing away so many questions! (Well, there was always one of two of them who were interested in making comments instead of asking questions.)
