Not 1 But 3 – M Literacy Residency 2019-2020 Winners!

By | News

THE M RESTAURANT GROUP PROUDLY ANNOUNCES NOT ONE BUT THREE RECIPIENTS FOR THE 2019 M LITERARY RESIDENCY!

In 2019 the M Restaurant Group is thrilled to be celebrating 20 years at M on the Bund in Shanghai, 10 years of awarding the M Literary Residency18 years since the inception of the Shanghai International Literary Festival and 30, yes, 30 years since it started the M Restaurant Group in Hong Kong. 

When we started the M Literary Residency, its aim was to encourage a true exchange of ideas between cultures so we sponsored one writer’s residency in China and one in India.

10 years on, the M Literary Residency is delighted to announce that in 2019/2020 not one, but three, residencies will be awarded to three excellent projects. The recipients will work in Shanghai over the next 12 months. 

We received an outstanding selection of submissions covering a wide and fascinating range of subjects, so choosing to whom to award the residency was an especially hard task for this year’s 20+ judges.

Since its inception, the M Literary Residency has supported over 20 writers and published more than 20 books, many of which have been both shortlisted and longlisted for major world literary prizes.

We are delighted to introduce the recipients of the 2019/2020 M Literary Residency:

JULIET PETRUS is a classical singer and Chinese music specialist. She will use her time in Shanghai to complete the manuscript of the upcoming release, SINGING IN MANDARIN, the next edition in the ‘Singing in’ Vocal Diction Series for the American publisher Rowman and Littlefield. The M Literary Residency will allow Juliet close collaboration with her co-writer Katherine Chu, who is based in Suzhou, and give her access to the resources unique to the classical vocal music scene in Shanghai and China.

STEVEN SCHWANKERT’s book project is to solve the mystery of one of China’s forgotten maritime disasters; one that claimed more lives than the Titanic and that is unexplained to this day, more than 70 years later. It’s the story of one of the world’s great shipwrecks, the victims of which could have been observed boarding and setting off from where M on the Bund and M Glam now stand.

VARSHA UPRAITY is a Nepali writer and researcher, currently based in Kathmandu. She writes poems and narrative fiction and has academic interests in the relationship between gender and resilience in the aftermath of traumatic phenomenon. She is currently working on two independent projects; a collection of short stories revolving around the experiences of women in contemporary Kathmandu, and a novel that tells the story of a man who disappears and the impact of this event on seven people who know him.

ABOUT M LITERARY RESIDENCY

The M Residency allows writers with an abiding interest in China to deepen their understanding of this vital and fascinating place. Established in 2009 and fully funded by the M Restaurant Group, the Residency has its roots in M’s Shanghai International Literary Festival and aims to foster artistic, cultural and intellectual links between individuals and communities. Many residents have published works completed during the M Literary Residency; to date, we have fostered over 20 published works. 

“This year all three writer’s projects are truly remarkable and it was indeed a very hard choice, even narrowing it down to 3 projects. Though each is unique, all have been chosen for their writing excellence, their clarity of explanation, their willingness to explore new ideas and their efforts to bring new voices to the literary world,” Michelle Garnaut said. “The themes they deal with are incredibly relevant and concern people from all walks of life, all over the world.”

Best Silf Yet: Week 2 in Review…

By | News

Another April,

Another Litefest comes to a close…

It’s always hard to farewell our favourite weeks of the year; the afternoons full with conversations and the evenings spent devouring our latest literary purchases. Litfest has passed as if in a dream, and we return to waking life. 

We’d like to sincerely thank all of the sponsors who made this year’s events possible for lending their support in myriad ways. We hosted 43 authors across 33 events this year, a feat certainly to be congratulated. 

Also a big thank you to everyone to who attended sessions this year, both to watch and to work; it was a thrill to see many of you more than once!

See the posts below for a summary of some popular sessions…

Olivia Martin McGuire: Engaged Chinese couples can spend up to USD$400,000 on a destination pre-wedding photoshoot. Others visit expansive photo studios on the outskirts of the city and spend 8 am to 10 pm in front of the lens, in search of the perfect depiction of their partnership. Australian photographer Olivia Martin McGuire shared her experiences shadowing these couples as part of her documentary process for China Love, delving into the rationale behind one of China’s mammoth industries. 

Rao Pingru: Ninety-eight year old Grandfather Rao spoke to an awed audience about his life story and his lifelong love for his wife, Meitang. Although he spent more than 20 years of their marriage away from her, his graphic novel Our Story commemorates the couple’s endurance through separation and sickness; it was a heartwarming lunch. 

Hugo-award winning sci-fi author Hao Jingfang spoke about her novella Folding Beijing, it’s exploration of space and inequality and her own approach to writing alongside her role at an economic think tank.

Cruz Garcia and Nathalie Frankowski, known in practice as WAI Architecture Think Tank, asked about the relationship of architecture to capital and wondered, through a walkthrough of their previous projects, how spaces might instead be used to facilitate learning and critical thinking.

Long-time Litfest favourite and Shanghai legend Paul French returned to Glam once again, this time to introduce the eighteen real life figures, albeit true characters, that populate his new book, Destination Shanghai

Sunday morning with Stephen Brusatte was an absolutely stand out session. A palaeontologist at the University of Edinburgh, Brusatte revealed to an amazed audience not only that birds are members of the dinosaur family tree, but also that many dinosaurs had feathers. 

Adrian Bradshaw arrived in China to study in the early 80s; instead, he found himself drifting away from formal language study and into photography as he documented the changes in China throughout the 1980s. In this retrospective session, Bradshaw talked the audience through his photographic collection of the era; quite literally providing a snapshot of China over three decades ago. 

For the kids: Our first Saturday session saw New Zealander and author of The Kitchen Science CookbookMichelle Dickinson, lead her young audience in easy experiments to pique their scientific minds.

Litfest 2019 was graced with not one, but two talks from Australian journalist Richard Fidler. We enjoyed his Friday conversation about Ghost Empire and the ancient layers of Constantinople in contemporary Istanbul so much that we squeezed in another session the following Tuesday. In this, he spoke about his more recent book, Saga Land, and the Icelandic tales and histories that it contains. 

The 1st Weekend of Litefest ’19 in Review

By | News

 

It was a stellar, star-studded weekend at Glam for the first days of Litfest 2019. There was hardly a bare chair in sight, with Christopher Doyle, Tess Johnston and the FT Debate leaving standing room only. 

 

Jin Yucheng

The beloved local novelist delved into the private lives and secret idiosyncrasies of Shanghai residents in the 1950s in conversation with his friend Qiu Xiaolong and Austin Woerner. The conversationalists’ excitement at Jin Yucheng’s own illustrations of his changing, fictional Shanghai was palpable as they sprang between English and Chinese in an effort to explain it all to their audience. 

Christopher Doyle

For Saturday’s closing session, Chris Doyle spoke to a wrapt audience about his relationship to the camera, the actors and his audience in an unprecedented hour long encore.  

You never know who will be in the crowd… we even had a special audience member Barry Jenkins, director and writer of Oscar-Winning film ‘Moonlight’…

Tess Johnston

Ever a Litfest favourite, Tess Johnston returned on Sunday morning to speak about the life of Daisy Kwok, daughter of a wealthy Shanghai family and survivor of the turmoils of 20th Century China. 

Alan Hollinghurst 

Another Litfest alumn, Man Booker Prizing winning author Alan Hollinghurst returned on Sunday to speak about his new novel, The Sparsholt Affair. Not least amongst the highlights were the sections he read aloud in his famously mellifluous baritone. Keep an eye open for the Podcasts, out in a few weeks…

FT Great Debate

The weekend ended in another iteration of the riotous FT Great Debate, with this year’s teams grappling with the motion: Is Brexit Best for Britain? Perhaps the votes were unsurprising, but the debate was full of thrilling twists and argumentative acrobatics by the brilliant FT correspondents.

Celebrated science-fiction writer and winner of the Hugo Award, Hao Jingfang’s (郝景芳) Folding Beijing is an absolute must-read.

Award-winning British-Pakistani writer, Nadeem Aslam, considered “one of the most exciting and serious British novelists writing now” just came out with his latest novel, The Golden Legend. We’ve read it…we suggest you do the same.

Qiu Xiaolong’s (裘小龙) long-awaited new addition to the Inspector Chen series: in Shanghai RedemptionInspector Chen Cao finds himself and his reputation being set up for public disgrace, and possibly worse…a suspenseful drama! 

David Abulafia’s The Great Sea: A Human History of the Mediterranen is a, “magnificent and quite stunningly compendious history of the Mediterranean, with a key to unlocking its rich and turbulent past.” A jewel for all of you history buffs!

Equipped with a historian’s inquiring mind, Billy Griffith’s Deep Time Dreaming seeks to understand the extraordinary deep history of the Australian continent. A one-of-a-kind book, highly recommended!

Steve Brusatte, a young American paleontologist who has emerged as one of the foremost stars of the field masterfully tells the complete, surprising, and new history of the dinosaurs, drawing on cutting-edge science to dramatically bring to life their lost world and illuminate their enigmatic origins, spectacular flourishing, astonishing diversity, cataclysmic extinction, and startling living legacy. Captivating and revelatory, The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs is a book for the ages.” A Litfest Favorite, we can’t wait!

M Talks: RE-READING SHANGHAI: CHINESE CHARACTERS DEEP INSIDE SHANGHAI’S OLD LANES

By | Upcoming Events

What secrets and stories of the past does Shanghai have written down for its attentive readers? What handwriting practices survive in the city which seemingly turns towards digital writing? Chinese script is known to accompany paintings, but in fact it tends to accompany in different forms many human creations, serving a number of purposes from informative to magical or decorative. This richly illustrated talk forms an attempt to look more closely at the fascinating connection between the city and writing practices, shaping its look, identity and daily life inside the lanes. It is a celebration of Shanghai urban space maintaining multilayered traces of various hopes and experiences, both in messages provided by the authorities and bottom-up expression of anonymous inhabitants. It is a combination of a broader overview of endangered urban writing practices in Shanghai and more thorough analysis of few of them, to provide insights and inspiration for those bound to Chinese script by passion and creative work.

Karolina Pawlik is an anthropologist, art historian and a poet, who is currently Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Southern California’s and Jiaotong University’s joint Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry. She has been based in Shanghai since 2012, teaching at L’école de design Nantes-Atlantique, Jiaotong University, the ESSCA School of Management, and L’école de Communication Visuelle. Main areas of research and interest include: visual modernism in Shanghai, evolution of writing practices in the 20th and 21st centuries, and transcultural design. She holds a PhD in Cultural Studies from the University of Silesia.
