Prism: Theory and Modern Chinese Literature


Prism actively promotes scholarly research on modern Chinese literature from interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspectives and encourages integration of theoretical inquiry with empirical research. Apart from the inclusion of the Sinophone works in the purview of modern Chinese literature, Prism seeks to further broaden the horizons of Chinese literary studies by initiating in-depth dialogues in the broad framework of critical theory.

Prism publishes two issues annually. Since its launch in 2019, Prism has published three regular issues and three special issues.
