The idea of a "global Chinese literature¨ draws together three recognizably fraught terms. Each of them brings into view additional related issues that the current volume addresses. But why global? Why now? Indeed, the timing is anticipatory, as the geography of modern Chinese literature has seldom been jointly reexamined from outside its national boundaries. Yet, so-called ¡§overseas Chinese,¡¨ to borrow another imperfect designation that separates mainland China from the rest of the Sinophone world according to bodies of water, have been writing since well before the nationalistic period. The historical fact of diaspora makes the present invocation of the global also somewhat belated. We choose the title ¡§global Chinese literature¡¨ for this volume in full awareness of its various settings, temporalities, omissions, and contradictions. Our aim is to make explicit the conceptual, disciplin- ary, historical, linguistic, and geographical tensions that occasion the emergence of Sinophone literature (huayu yuxi wenxue µØ»y»y¨t¤å¾Ç). In our view, the point of departure is best staged at the gathering of consensus as well as dissensus among multiple disciplinary perspec- tives, each born from a different academic context and its created audience. Those who expect to rely on a readily made reference to Anglophone, Francophone, or Lusophone studies will not ?nd it here. Each of those domains too carries its own historical imperative, and they ought not be drawn together in the same way that postcolonial- ism had previously rallied different experiences of oppression to its platform. Similarly, for those accustomed to a nation-based historiog- raphy of modern Chinese literature, our challenge here is to present the disarticulation of its lineage and methodology. Instead of providing an overview that inserts each of the ten essays into a single grid of purpose, we thus begin with an outline of the larger trajectories that have framed their differences.
