Masculinizing Jianghu Spaces: Homosociality, Nationalism, and Chineseness

Geng Song
Jianghu 江湖 (rivers and lakes) refers to the imagined spatial arena in Chinese literature and culture that is parallel to, or sometimes in a tangential relationship with, mainstream society. Inhabited by merchants, craftsmen, beggars, and vagabonds, and later bandits, outlaws, and gangsters, the jianghu space constitutes a “field” (to borrow Pierre Bourdieu’s term) that produces alternative subjectivities in traditional Chinese culture. In most representations, jianghu is primarily a social world of men, which honours masculine moral codes.
