On Oct 26- 29th 2022 an international symposium on Jin Ping Mei, the famous late 16th century Chinese novel, took place in Copenhagen.
Organised by Vibeke Børdahl (NIAS) and Søren Møller Christensen (Vandkunsten) with the support of S.C. Van Foundation, the Carlsberg Foundation and The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters, the symposium celebrated two publications: the final volume of a translation of the novel into Danish by Vibeke (published by Vandkunsten) and a volume bringing together the best research of Jin Ping Mei by both established and emerging scholars (edited by Vibeke with Rick Qi, published by NIAS Press).
NIAS Press attended the symposium, exhibiting both Vibeke and Rick’s new volume as well as many of the other works Vibeke has published with NIAS Press over the years.
Thanks to the Carlsberg Academy, the venue took place in beautiful premises overlooking the Carlsberg Gardens.
