Rather than approaching modern China from an economic or sociopolitical perspective, this series publishes books that theorize China through a variety of literary methodologies. The series broadly defines China, cutting across political and geographic boundaries to include mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the Chinese diaspora. It features critical and analytical studies written in English as well as translations of pathbreaking Chinese scholarship. The series also includes modern Chinese literature in translation that engages the series’ theoretical concerns. Using approaches that range from Marxism and psychoanalysis to ecocriticism, queer theory, and those grounded in Chinese thought, books in this series present new modes of understanding the concepts of China and the literary.
