In 1995 writer and literary critic Chi Ta-wei published The Membranes (è†œ), a groundbreaking work of queer speculative fiction. Twenty-five years after its initial publication in Chinese, Ari Larissa Heinrich has produced a new English-language translation of this landmark novel. This online event will bring together the writer and translator to reflect upon The Membranes and its place in the history of queer literature in Taiwan. Divided into three parts, this event will feature short lectures by Professors Chi and Heinrich, followed by a dialogue with Michael Berry and members of the audience.
