This review presents some key issues in the mainland Chinese research on literary works of Chinese emigrants and authors of Chinese descent examining a series of recently published and representative papers. After a brief retrospection of the development of relative studies in the country, the author discusses the questions of denomination, methodology, and canon by juxtaposing opinions of various scholars. In the analysis a particular attention is given to the “Chineseness”, a concept sometimes mythicized by some essentialist discourses in the Chinese academia.
