This new series aims to publish theoretically-informed, source-based scholarship on women and gender issues in China studies. Manuscript submissions may range in chronological coverage from earliest times to contemporary China. We will consider monograph studies as well as edited volumes from all disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. We also encourage interdisciplinary and comparative approaches to complex themes and questions.
Women and Gender in China Studies
Edited by Grace S. Fong, McGill University
Edited by Grace S. Fong and Ellen Widmer
Drawing on a library of newly digitized resources, this volume's eleven chapters describe, analyze, and theorize the enormous literary output of women writers of the Ming and Qing periods (1368-1911) that have only recently been rediscovered.
This important contribution to the study of early modern Chinese fiction and representation of gender relations focuses on literary representations of the prostitute produced in the Ming and Qing periods.
