Excavation of Historical Records in the Xiqu Reform Movement: a Study of Two Xiqu Periodicals in the Early 1950s(2/2)

  • Sun, Mei (PI)

Project Details


The first two years of the 1950's are the beginning stage of the Xiqu Reform Movement in the People's Republic of China, during which there were significant policy adjustments and administrative restructure in the Ministry of Culture. However, the academic studies concerning the period of Xiqu Reform Movement by far are rather simple. This research project will study two xiqu periodicals published by the government of the People's Republic of China in 1950 and 1951 in order to further explore the historical development of Xiqu Reform Movement in the two years. The project will consist of two related parts that give mutual support. The first part of the project will study The New Xiqu published in Beijing. The second part of the project will study The Xiqu Bulletin published in Shanghai.
