Methods in China-India Studies special issue

We are pleased to announce the publication of a special issue of the International Journal of Asian Studies on “Methods in China-India Studies”.

The issue reflects on the recent growing interest in studying China and India together, and opens a space of dialogue and reflection on the intellectual stakes, limitations, and possibilities of such work. Several articles in the issue focus on modern Chinese literature and culture and may be of interest to MCLC members.
