      1. A groundbreaking study of Occidentalism from the perspective of post-Mao China, Chen approaches her material from a combined comparative literature/cultural studies perspective. Chen’s most provocative claim is that the appropriation of Occidentalism (western discourse) can have an emancipatory effect on non-western cultures such as China.
