Fabio Lanza Discussion

The PRC History group is pleased to announce that we have archived a very interesting discussion that appeared recently on Facebook, so that it is now publicly available and with added commentary. Lucas Klein posted a question about Tani Barlow’s translation of Ding Ling’s “Miss Sophie’s Diary” and that led to a long exchange with lots of important insight and excellent references. We archived the full post, along with an introduction by Klein and afterwords by Tani Barlow on her translation and by Roy Chan, who reflected on using the translation in teaching. 

We are interested in archiving more such social media discussions. If such a discussion takes places on one of your post or you see a relevant exchange please let us know at
