Women Writers as Cultural Entrepreneurs: Anni Baobei

Item Type Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
Abstract This study aims to explore the role of women as cultural entrepreneurs (wenhua qiyejia 文化企业家) in China’s rising cultural industries (wenhua chanye 文化产业) and new media. As a case study we analyse the rise of Anni Baobei 安妮宝贝 (Annie Baby, alias Li Jie 励婕, b. 1974), one of China’s first new Internet writers who became a literary sensation at the turn of the twenty-first century. She is worth a closer look as she started a new trend in cultural production and also epitomizes China’s new women cultural entrepreneurs. Although she counts among China’s most successful writers in reform-era China, there is a dearth of analytical studies of her works and career that this study aims to redress.
