Unofficial poetry journals

In 2006, Professor Maghiel van Crevel donated his collection of unofficial poetry journals from the People’s Republic of China to the East Asian Library. This is an internationally unique collection, acquired during his extensive fieldwork since 1991, dating from the first publications after the Cultural Revolution in 1978 until the beginning of the 21st century.

A complete list of the journals can be found through the library catalogue with the search term SINOL. UNPO. You can also find this list through Van Crevel’s “Unofficial Poetry Journals from the People’s Republic of China: A Research Note and an Annotated Bibliography” (2007), accessible from the MCLC Resource Center.
