In honor of Harvard University Professor Stephen Owen’s retirement from teaching, the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at Harvard University and the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures at Yale University will convene an international symposium on Chinese and comparative literatures on April 26 and 27, 2018, at Harvard University. Papers will span the many fields within which Professor Owen’s contributions have been felt, and allow participants, drawn from among Owen’s graduate advisees and from the top scholars of Chinese and comparative literature around the world, to reflect upon the ways these fields have changed over the course of his long teaching career and the new directions in which they are developing, and should develop, in the years ahead.

Sponsored by the Chiang Ching-Kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange, the Harvard University Asia Center, the Harvard University Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies, the Harvard-Yenching Institute, and the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at Harvard University.
