Overview

This volume develops new strategies for reading, contextualizing, and interpreting the long Chinese tradition of women’s biography. Drawing upon a vast array of sources—from formal biography to poetry, letters, and oral interviews—the authors examine how women’s biography served particular cultural, political, and world-making projects, and how it illuminates these projects in new ways by highlighting tensions within and between them.
