Summary

Critical Zone is a project of collaboration among scholars from Hong Kong, mainland China, the United States, and Europe. An established series in cultural and literary studies, jointly published by the Hong Kong University Press and Nanjing University Press, it is conceived as an intellectual bridge between China and the rest of the world, and a zone of scholarly and critical convergence beyond regional and disciplinary boundaries.
