e ugene Chen e oyang In reporting on the situation vis-à-vis Comparative Literature in Hong Kong, I need to allude to René Wellek’s 3 981 essay, “e Th Name and Nature of Comparative Literature.” I think it fair to say that the name of “Comparative Literature” is mori- bund if not well-nigh dead in Hong Kong, but the “nature” of Comparative Litera- ture remains as vital and as flourishing as ever. Let me r fi st deal with the name. e Th Hong Kong Comparative Literature Asso- ciation died in the 980s. 1 Its last president, Professor P. K. Leung, then a professor in the Comparative Literature program at Hong Kong University, now a Chair Pro- fessor of Comparative Literature at Lingnan University, is an active and produc- tive poet, teacher, and cultural studies scholar, who recently completed a Fulbright Fellowship in Germany. In Hong Kong, there was (and is) only one Comparative Literature department, and that was (and is) at Hong Kong University—although comparatists were to be found in the Chinese University of Hong Kong as well.
