Doktorandenseminar/Workshop: "Heavenly Questions": Text and Translations, Interpretive Traditions, and Comparative Contexts

Doktorandenseminar/Workshop, Freitag, 29. November bis Sonntag, 01. Dezember 2019


The "Heavenly Questions" 天問 is a long rhyming poem attributed to Ou Yuan and composed entirely in the interrogative mood.

In this course we will examine the text from several distinct points of view, not attempting to answer any fundamental questions about its nature, but rather familiarizing ourselves with the multilayered debates and discourses that surround the text.


Prof. Dr. Nick Morrow Williams (The University of Hong Kong)
