When a book is included in the series of the world-renowned Sinologist Victor Mair (University of Pennsylvania) and praised by top Sinophone scholars David Der-wei Wang (Harvard University), Shu-mei Shih (UCLA), and Quah Sy Ren (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore), it is not surprising (but still very gratifying!) when it is praised in a journal review for being “[w]ell-written and researched” because it “makes important contributions to Sinophone studies, Chinese studies, and Southeast Asian Studies, as well as to scholarship on diaspora, comparative literature, and world literature.”
Browse Rethinking Chineseness: Translational Sinophone Identities in the Nanyang Literary World by E .K.
