We had a great time this past weekend exhibiting at the 2015 annual meeting for the Association for Asian Studies, held in Chicago on March 26th to the 29th. We had a lot of interesting new titles on display at our booth!
Of course, we’re always happy when our authors are able to stop by the booth! Thanks to everyone who came by to say hello.
Here is Wendy Matsumura, showing off her brand new book The Limits of Okinawa.
Mark Driscoll stopped by to say hello, here he is with his book, Absolute Erotic, Absolute Grotesque
We also snapped a photo of William Marotti with his book, Money, Trains, and Guillotines.
We celebrated the launch of the Journal of Chinese Literature and Culture on Friday night with a reception. Two editors-in-chief of the journal, Zong-qi Cai and Liu Yucai, were able to attend the event. The reception included speeches from our Editorial and Administrative Manager Rob Dilworth, Zong-qi Cai, and Liu Yucai.
The Journal of Chinese Literature and Culture publishes research articles and essays on premodern Chinese literature and all aspects of the broader literary culture. It also publishes work that explores the influence of traditional literature and culture in modern and contemporary China. For some periods of the twentieth century, the study of premodern Chinese literature was considered by some an impediment to the rise of science and democracy, but it is now recognized in China as a valuable heritage that can enrich Chinese culture for the twenty-first century. Jointly sponsored by Peking University and the University of Illinois, the journal is committed to an international editorial vision and to in-depth exchange and collaboration among scholars in China, the United States, and other parts of the world.
