It leads us to follow the writers' steps to travel through genres like novels, prose, poems and fairy tales to recall our memories of the community in different eras. The thematic exhibition consists of four sub-zones, namely "Eye on Nature" which identifies natural landscape for leisure walking on the skirt of the city; "Wandering the Streets" which dives into writers' deepest memories and tenderest sentiments and witnesses social changes; "Taste of Memories" which brings us back in time through food-related memories; "Portrait of Humanity" which looks into the daily lives of different social classes and their struggles against social changes. The tie-in activity, namely "Literary Works in Virtual Reality"# will be provided. Participants will experience a new mode to appreciate literature through the application of virtual reality and augmented reality. Life is short, but it is fortunate that literature allows us to go beyond boundaries. A literary journey refreshes our memories which lead us to a new dimension and remind us of the essence of our lives.
The symposium focuses on how the crisscrossing of time, space and memories inspires literary writing. From the perspectives of urban writing, food memories and displacement in literature, speakers will share their views and research in this series.
