PEN Atlas: Dorothy Tse on Hong Kong literature and the Umbrella Movement

Hong Kong’s pro-democracy Umbrella Movement was galvanised after the region’s governing body passed restrictive electoral reforms in August 2014. Here, writer and assistant professor Dorothy Tse investigates the role of literature in the movement, and asks what the future of Hong Kong literature is in light of rapid sociopolitical changes taking place.
