Eileen Chang went on to become an active member in the cultural fields of Shanghai and Taiwan. Even after her death in 1995, she still exerted a profound impact on literature today. Since the publication of her early fiction and essays after 1943, she and her subsequent works continued to be imagined by the cultural fields of the two places. An enormous number of reports concerning Eileen Chang appeared in newspapers and magazines, including the author and her writing, her interaction with other intellectuals and scholars, her movies and film promotion, etc. These reports provide a wealth of data that could shed light on the structure of different cultural fields. For example, the reports showed how Eileen Chang and her writing interacted with different members in the cultural fields such as publishers, editors of newspapers and magazines, scholars, readers, etc. This talk discusses how the ‘imagination’ process of Eileen Chang was affected by cultural fields in Shanghai and Taiwan.
