Transaction Publishers Appoints New Asian Studies Series Editors
Transaction Publishers, a major independent publisher of social science books assigns Professors Ching-I Tu and Dietrich Tschanz as the new editors of the Asian Studies book series.
The revamped Asian Studies series features interdisciplinary, international, cutting-edge research on a wide range of topics in Asian and East Asian Studies including:
• environment and climate change
• green technologies
• social stratification
• economic reforms
• media and communication
• women and gender
The series will draw on many disciplines such as history, history of medicine, economics, sociology, anthropology, politics, philosophy, and cultural studies. The editors are especially interested in manuscripts that focus on contemporary Asia with reference to its traditions, revealing continuities, disruptions, and refractions in the progressive changes of the region.
“This union reinforces Transaction’
Professor Tu is founding chair of the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures, and director of the Confucius Institute of Rutgers University (CIRU). CIRU was established in 2007 in partnership with Jilin University, one of the major universities in China, and with support from the Confucius Institute Headquarters. Its mission is to promote Chinese language and culture, encourage development of Chinese Studies, and facilitate the understanding of contemporary China. Through its lecture series, international conferences and symposiums, course offerings, and publications the Institute has played an important role in advancing the study of China both at Rutgers and the state of New Jersey.
Dr. Tschanz is a lecturer at the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures at Rutgers. His specialties include Chinese poetry, theater, and performing arts of late imperial China.
