About The Lecture:
Late imperial China (ca. seventeenth century–early twentieth century) witnessed an explosion of women writers and the flourishing of religious culture, such as Daoist culture. This talk will focus on how women writers created various images of the female immortal to enhance their literary productivity and to meet their emotional needs. These women's writings highlight their talent as writers and demonstrate the worth of their very existence.
