外語學院推動「文學全球化」運動:《世界文學》創刊問世。

From the moment we start learning to read, we come into contact with children's literature. From ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ to ‘Snow White’, such classics accompany us as we grow up and mature, giving us a world of endless possibilities, emotion, and inspiration. Despite the wealth of literature in Taiwan, there exists a shortage in high quality literature translations that offer comprehensive introductions, commentaries, and analyses.

To address this dearth in high quality literature, the TKU College of Languages and Literature has teamed up with Linking Publishing to produce a unique quarterly publication known as “World Literature”. World Literature seeks to make literature accessible to the average reader, and to attract a wide range of readers while maintaining depth of content. To celebrate the release of the first edition of World Literature, a publication launch was held at the lobby of the Foreign Languages Building at lunch time on March 14.

The Dean of the College of Foreign Languages and Literature, Dr. Wu Hsi-Deh, explained: “helping readers develop an appreciation of literature requires a publication with expert commentaries, the participation of experts in handling primarily materials, as well as analysis and arguments from experts well-versed in the history of literature. Before the release of World Literature there was no such publication available in Taiwan”.

The Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Linking Publishing, Hu Jin-lun, asserted that the direction and spirit of the publication World Literature fits perfectly with that of Linking Publishing. “We look forward to a long and prosperous partnership with Tamkang University”, he added.
