My project investigates the representations of Shanghai during the Republican era as reflected in the literary works of Chinese and French authors, with a particular focus on Zhang Ruogu 張若谷 and George Soulide Morant. I consider modern Shanghai as a ‘contact zone’ (Mary Louise Pratt, 1991) where local and foreign writers act as transcultural agents.
