Chapter Summary

The importance of the debate around Sinophone is radically different from the potential impact on Chinese literary studies of the terms that have preceded it: unlike overseas or diasporic Chinese literature, or Chinese Malaysian or Malaysian Chinese literature, each of which locates the specificity of its address explicitly outside the national norm established by the Peoples Republic, the Sinophonefar more than even global Chinese literaturethreatens to upend the stability of the center, rather than simply reproduce and valorize a form of marginality that relies on it. This book appears precisely in the incipience opened by that debate, whose possibilities may yet develop.

Keywords: Chinese literature; Sainifeng; Sinophone
