The AAS China and Inner Asia Council Hanan Book Prize Competition honors Patrick D. Hanan, the Victor S. Thomas Professor of Chinese Literature at Harvard University, who passed away in 2014. Hanan studied Chinese vernacular fiction and, through his elegant and witty translations, brought to light neglected works such as The Carnal Prayer Mat, The Sea of Regret, and A Tower for the Summer Heat. The deadline for nominations is September 30, 2019. For more information about eligibility and to apply, please visit the AAS Hanan Book Prize Competition page.
