Chapter Summary

This index of the book Romancing the Internet: Producing and Consuming Chinese Web Romance presents a list of proper nouns, terms and concepts relevant to the discussion on Chinese women's consumption of Web romances. The book shows how Chinese women create cultural capital for themselves by employing various strategies of online rewriting, such as producing fan fiction (fanfic), to reconfigure popular romances. Web romance thus serves as a window to examine the narrative patterns and ideologies of Chinese popular literature and the social power that the Internet engenders in contemporary China.

Keywords: Chinese literature; Chinese Web romance; Chinese women
