LITERÁRNÍ CENZURA A AUTOCENZURA V ČÍNĚ: DVĚ PŘÍPADOVÉ STUDIE
Literary censorship and self-censorship in china: Two case studies
Languages of publication
Starting with Mao Zedong’s “Talks at the Yan’an Forum” delivered in May 1942, literature in China was seen as the key tool of propaganda. Censorship has been a natural part of the Chinese literary system established after the founding of the PRC. The centralized, state-controlled literary establishment was gradually abolished during the post-Mao era, but the basic principles in the official Party discourse remain. Two case studies focused on one of the most sensitive topics, minority nationalities, provide a deeper insight into the ideological back-grounds and aims of Chinese censorship, which can be summed up by notions of social harmony and stability.
