Alternative Sinology

About the series

This series provides a dedicated outlet for monographs and edited volumes in all fields of humanities and social sciences from medieval to contemporary on East and Southeast Asia. It is particularly interested in those that take alternative views on China; use alternative research methodologies to achieve unique outcomes; focus on otherwise understudied or marginalised aspects, Chineseness, or the Chinese state and the Chinese cultural diaspora; or generally attempt to unsettle the status quo in Asian and Chinese Studies, broadly construed.

This series emphasises imagination and originality, welcome every aspect of the mainstream and 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.
