This is a translation from the reflective work of Ji Xianlin, who was one of the major intellectuals in 20th-Centuery China and a scholar of Indian languages and cultures at Peking University, China. Originally written in Chinese and published in China during the 1990s, the cowshed records the author's personal experiences of staying in a "cowshed" during the Cultural Revolution, which was a place for the "re-education" of intellectual criminals. This piece of writing also belongs to a particular type of literature during the post-Cultural Revolution period, which is usually called the "scar literature." ( )
