Critical China Studies

Membership, contacts, brief description

Critical China Studies

The Critical China Studies group aims to foster intellectual conversations and exchange among the growing interdisciplinary community of China specialists both at the University of Toronto and the greater Toronto area. Our group draws faculty members and graduate students from departments and programs such as History, East Asian studies, Art History, Anthropology, Media Studies, Comparative Literature, Geography, Religious Studies, Sociology, Performance Studies, and Women’s and Gender Studies, among others. Our working group meetings average two to three hours. Papers and other reading materials are usually pre-circulated, either through email or through the JHI website.
