Moving away from postcolonial and national debates, my thesis is concerned with English as a hegemonic world language and the implications thereof. Both my scholarly and personal interests in Li’s writing have culminated in my honors thesis. I am particularly grateful to have had the opportunity to interview Li, and a significant portion of my thesis was informed by our conversation. I have included a transcript of the interview in the appendix.
