The second round of the Taiwan Culture Salon (臺灣文化沙龍) in the U.K. will feature Li Ang (李昂), a Taiwanese writer who is best known for her social criticism and intertwinement of gender, food, and politics, on Sept. 7.
Li first rose to fame with her 1983 novella, 'The Butcher's Wife (殺夫),' in which she delineated the hostility of Asia's conservative attitude towards women through a gruesome tale of sex, oppression, and murder.
In her upcoming "Sex, Food and Politics” tour of the U.K., Li will first present a lecture at the University of Edinburgh on Aug. 27, before joining the Taiwan Culture Salon at the Kensington Central Library on Sept. 7.
Her lecture will be accompanied by a Q&A session hosted by Dr. Yang Chia-ling, senior lecturer at the Edinburgh College of Art.
