A Typography of Chinese Film Historiography
Chinese film historiography has long been a marginal or marginalized intellectual endeavor both in China and in the West, and one can hardly speak of it as a discipline even now. What is worse, an overemphasis on contemporary Chinese cinema over the past decade has resulted in a sheer neglect of film history and historiography in this new field. In order to assess the current state of Chinese film studies and to get a more comprehensive view of the history of Chinese cinema, it is necessary for us to shift attention away from an exclusive focus on the 1980s and 1990s and to examine, by way of archival research, historical investigation, and critical analysis, what has been accomplished in Chinese film historiography over the century.
