IAS Program

Chinese Creative Writing (2014)






Since fall 2013, HKUST Jockey Club Institute for Advanced Study has launched the Chinese Creative Writing Program. Professor Liu Zaifu, the world-renowned literary critic and writer, has joined IAS as a Senior Visiting Fellow and director of this program. Each year IAS will invite 2-3 leading contemporary Chinese writers such as Gao Xingjian, Mo Yan, Yan Lianke, Yu Hua, Su Tong, Wang Anyi, Jia Pingwa, and others to join the Chinese Creative Writing Program, ushering HKUST students into the colorful world of contemporary Chinese literature. The program will explore the major issues and prospects of creative Chinese writing in a global age and seek to build HKUST as a major platform of such discourses in the higher education sector locally, nationally and internationally. It will also greatly enrich the academic and intellectual community of IAS by creating more exchange and interaction among top scientists in the world and top creative writers from China and beyond.

Welcome to grasp the opportunities of exciting face-to-face dialogues with the world-renowned contemporary Chinese writers and critics! Come to meet with the outstanding literary masters!
