Paris holds international seminar on Mo Yan’s works

On the first anniversary of Mo Yan winning the Nobel Prize for Literature, an international seminar was held in Paris on October 18 and 19. Organized by the Center for East Asia of University of Paris VII, Center for Comparative Literature of University of Paris Ⅲ and the School of Asian Studies of Aix-Marseilles University, the seminar gathered more than one hundred researchers and experts from USA, Switzerland, Italy and France.

Mo Yan’s hallucinatory realist work that merges folk tales, history and contemporary life, combined with his skilled and fascinating style of storytelling, earned him the prestigious literary prize last year.

Highlight: It was a large-scale international seminar focused on a Chinese writer organized by foreign institutes, which added fuel to the fire for further international recognition of Chinese writers.
