- M.A. in classical Chinese Literature from Fudan University
Before coming to Princeton, Lili Xia received her M.A. in classical Chinese literature from Fudan University (2016), where she finished her thesis on the reminiscent phenomena and collective memory within Song literati about their own culture and history. Her on-going research further explores the shared cultural repertoire and canonization of classical Chinese literature mirrored in collective memory and commemorative texts during the Tang-Song period. She also keeps an enduring passion for Chinese intellectual history, especially the (re)construction mechanism and creative hermeneutics of Chinese canons in the long term.
