Title: Remembering May Fourth : the movement and its centennial legacy / edited by Carlos Yu-Kai Lin, City University of Hong Kong, Victor H. Mair, University of Pennsylvania.

Description: Leiden ; Boston : Brill, [2020] | Series: Ideas, history, and modern China, 1875-9394 ; vol. 23 | Summary: “Remembering May Fourth: The Movement and its Centennial Legacy is a collective work of thirteen scholars who reflect on the question of how to remember the May Fourth Movement, one of the most iconic socio-political events in the history of modern China. The book discusses a wide range of issues concerning the relations between politics and memory, between writing and ritualizing, between fiction and reality, and between theory and practice. Remembering May Fourth thus calls into question the ways in which the movement is remembered, while at the same time calling for the need to create new memories of the movement”—Provided by publisher.
