Contemporary Foreign Literature, originated in 1980, is now the only journal of articles and reviews dedicated to the study of contemporary literature outside of China. It was first a journal of translations introducing to the Chinese what was going on in the world of literature. Chinese people couldn’t have known Western literature if it had not been for the inception of the journal Contemporary Foreign Literature in the 1980s. It was Contemporary Foreign Literature that opened the world of foreign literature to the Chinese then. Many Chinese literary scholars got to know new foreign literary thoughts through the journal giving rise to a boom of academic researches on contemporary foreign literature in mainland China. The contributions and impacts that Contemporary Foreign Literature has made are so enormous that China News and Publication Bureau and China Ministry of Education have jointly conferred it as one of the five core journals in the field of foreign literature studies.
