The renowned scholar and cultural critic Leo Ou-fan Lee gives a lecture about “flying” as a trope of time-space transformation in late Qing literature. By exploring works of modern Chinese fiction and translations, Prof. Lee aims to recover the moment in history when art forms across cultures appeared to illuminate each other.
