About Us

The Center for Studies of Literary Theories, affiliated with Beijing Normal University, was established in 2000. Originally, it was the first seat of learning for literary theories in the PRC founded in 1953. Led by the famed theorist Huang Yaomian, it designed the first nationwide teaching syllabus for the course of introduction of literary theories, and set up the first graduate program in the country. It had achieved eminence in pioneering work for the construction of the discipline from its early days. In 1983, it had the first PhD program for literary studies in the country. Since 1987, under the leadership of Professor Tong Qingbing, all research fellows teamed up for corporation and innovation, which facilitates the center to take the leading role in areas such as comparative poetics, literary psychology, and stylistics.

In 2000, the Center was selected the key research institute for studies of humanities and social sciences by the Ministry of Education. It is responsible for two weighty research projects of the Ministry annually, and it fulfills more than 20 other important projects on the state level each year.
