Alternative Sinology

About the series

This series provides a dedicated outlet for monographs and edited volumes that take alternative views on contemporary or historical China; use alternative research methodologies to achieve unique outcomes; focus on otherwise understudied or marginalised aspects of China, Chineseness, or the Chinese state and the Chinese cultural diaspora; or generally attempt to unsettle the status quo in Chinese Studies, broadly construed. There has never been a better time to embark on such a series, as both China and the academic disciplines engaged in studying it seem ready for change.

This series emphasises imagination and originality, welcome every aspect of the non-mainstream – from form, to message, to topic – but rests on a deep concern for ethics, empiricism and scholarly rigour. Editors privilege no one definition of China or the meaning of Chinese and encourage interdisciplinary work.
