Research Project:
Feminism in China: Names and Ideas (1920-1940s)
This project deals with some problems in current study on the intellectual history of Chinese feminism. By references to a great number of primary sources, this project examines the Chinese translations of feminism in the 1920s, when the theory had been introduced but the name was first translated into china, and the ideological meanings and social practice in correspondence with the terminology, so as to reconstruct the history of feminist ideas developed in China from the early 1920s to the end of 1940s.
