I am interested in fiction and popular culture.I am trying to analyze the historical changes of Chinese fiction from the perspective of evolutionary psychology and cultural evolution. To explain, why some fictions have survived and are even popular today, such as Journey to the West. And why have some fiction gradually disappeared in the history?How and why some fiction has been adapted through history?
