About the CCCC / 古文品讀:

CCCC is a reading group for students and scholars interested in premodern Chinese studies. All are welcome, at any level of experience with classical Chinese. 

At each session one participant presents a text in classical or literary Chinese. Attendees discuss historical, literary, linguistic, and all other aspects of the text, and work together to resolve difficulties in comprehension and translation. Presentations include works of all sorts, from the earliest times to the twentieth century. 

No preparation required: all texts will be distributed at the meeting.
