Publications

The CTS has launched four series of publications in promoting English translation of Taiwan literature and Taiwan-related studies in English. Through these series CTS seeks to demonstrate the validity of Taiwan literature as a world literature, by making representative works accessible in English translation and thereby promoting the appreciation and study of Taiwan literature from international perspectives. These series will provide a growing resource of materials for teaching and research beyond the borders of Taiwan, not only in Taiwan literature itself, but in the fields of Chinese literature, comparative literature, and world literatures in Chinese.
