Asian Cultural Studies: Transnational and Dialogic Approaches

Koichi Iwabuchi, Professor, Communications & Media Studies, Monash University

The Asian Cultural Studies: Transnational and Dialogic Approaches series aims to advance transnational intellectual dialogue over diverse issues that are shared in various Asian countries and cities. While the examination of cultural issues in a particular socio-historical context is crucial, trans-Asia perspectives will further enrich such investigations by giving a fresh insight from other Asian experiences and through the consideration of transnational connections. It will also cultivate the sense of shared-ness among researchers working on the similar issues in different places and foster transnational collaboration to tackle the shared issues beyond the confinement of the nation-state. This book series will be the first English language series of its kind to publish scholarly monographs and edited collections in this dynamic space.
