The MCLC Resource Center and Modern Chinese Literature and Culture sponsor the MCLC LIST, a blog/listserv devoted to scholarly discussion of the culture of twentieth and twenty-first century China (encompassing Taiwan and Hong Kong), including literature, film and media, popular culture, material culture, performing and visual arts, and social issues. The MCLC LIST welcomes scholars and students of China, and others whose interest in Chinese culture may not be academic. To subscribe, click the “blog” logo to the lower right. In addition to being archived under “categories” in the blog, postings are also archived here.

Subscribers may submit messages in the form of (for example): queries to the list; reviews of recent books, films, plays, or television programs; comments on research in progress; discussion of issues related to the teaching of Chinese culture; announcements of relevant scholarly and cultural activities; and news articles related to cultural events or social issues. We especially welcome comments about and critiques of articles published in recent issues of the journal Modern Chinese Literature and Culture, and MCLC Resource Center publications and book reviews. You can also follow the MCLC LIST on Twitter. To post a message, highlight the MCLC LIST tab in the menu banner above, and go to “Submit a Post.”

This blog is moderated, which means that messages and comments you submit will be screened by the moderator Kirk A. Denton. Individual subscribers, however, are responsible for the content, accuracy, and relevance of their messages. We hope that subscribers take care in what they say and how they say it and that civility is always upheld. Postings should be addressed to the list.
