in Chinese Studies Review (WAGRev):
and Gender in Chinese
Studies Review (WAGRev) is an
scholarly review journal launched by the Women and Gender in Chinese
Studies Network (WAGNet). The reason for setting up this new review
journal is to facilitate exchange of information about and assessment
of new publications in the field of China-related women and gender
studies. In particular, WAGRev encourages exchange across linguistic
boundaries by inviting both Chinese and Western scholars to submit book
reviews written in either Chinese or English. WAGRev is an interactive
site that allows reviewers, authors and readers to engage in scholarly
debate about new publications which are felt to be of interest to
teachers, researchers and colleagues from across the disciplines. We
wish WAGRev to become a site which provokes discussion, stimulates
debates, even arouses disagreements – and will be a Must Read
for all of us!
WAGRev welcomes reviews of scholarly books on women and gender issues
of modern and pre-modern China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Chinese
communities outside China. It also welcomes responses to reviews by
authors or readers which will be published together with the review
under discussion. WAGRev particularly encourages graduate students to
submit reviews and participate in discussions that relate to their
field of research.
