Announcing a New U-M Press Series: Global Queer Asias

by Charles Watkinson on November 5, 2020

University of Michigan Press is proud to announce a new series, Global Queer Asias.

The Global Queer Asias series provides an interdisciplinary platform for conceptual, archival, and ethnographic research that pushes academic discussions of Asia in new directions. The series publishes groundbreaking books from both established academics and rising scholars with innovative rubrics, frameworks, and agendas. Works in this series should engage with inclusively defined “queer” issues, that is, the social and cultural dynamics of gender and sexual diversity. Though situated in geographic sites typically associated with the label “Asia,” this series pushes for comparative and global perspectives and calls for rigorous attention to themes, approaches, and social-cultural patterns that either emerge from cross-border movements or transcend regional and national boundaries. Studies in which diaspora and migration experiences come to the fore are especially welcome, as is research that brings critical race/ethnic theory, disability studies, and other intersectional approaches to bear on inter-regional studies outside the modern West.

Series Editors:

Howard Chiang is Associate Professor of History at the University of California, Davis.
James Welker is a Professor in the Department of Cross-Cultural Studies at Kanagawa University.
