Virtual Chinese Literature: A Comparative Case Study of Online Poetry Communities

Michel Hockx
2005 The China Quarterly

The first part provides a brief general overview of the current state of research about the Chinese internet. I take issue with the dominant tendency of English-language research to focus almost exclusively on questions of censorship.
