Title:"The Literary Circles of the Early Republican Period and Literature Revolution :A Case Study of the Emergence of Chinese Women's Fiction"/民初文坛与文学革命——从中国女性小说创作的发生谈起

Abstract
长期以来,海内外学界倾向于将民初文坛与文学革命作“否断式”的认知。尽管已有一些学人将新文学的发生与晚清相联系,但普遍地忽视或贬低民初的时段。实际上,民初文坛与文学革命的复杂关系,有许多是值得仔细清理与认真探究的学术命题。
本报告将以中国女性小说创作的发生为例,重新思考民初文坛与文学革命的关系。在一般意义上,学术界普遍认定文学革命时期是中国女性小说创作的初兴阶段。但本报告将揭示被视为“鸳蝴派”的民初小说家在中国女性小说创作的发生过程中所起到的不可忽视的作用。这一事件在小说创作和性别层面具有双重的进步意义。
