Twentieth-Century China

Twentieth-Century China, a refereed scholarly journal, considers manuscripts written from a wide range of disciplinary perspectives. The journal seeks original scholarly contributions that challenge old paradigms, propose new ideas and theses, set forth innovative research and methodologies, or engage significant historiographical or interpretive issues regarding China’s long twentieth century, as seen in mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong, or diasporic activities. Comparative empirical and/or theoretical studies that are rooted in Chinese experience but touch on non-China-related subjects are also welcome. In addition, the journal welcomes proposals for reviews of significant works published in languages other than English and related to twentieth-century China, for English translations of influential articles, or for symposium-style special issues. The journal also seeks to provide a forum for scholarly conference and project announcements and similar activities that promote the academic pursuits of the journal’s readers around the world.
