Coming November 2010

Set to go live on November 1, 2010, Chinese History Dissertation Reviews is a new site that features overviews of recently defended, unpublished doctoral dissertations in the field of Chinese history. Our goal is to offer readers a glimpse of the discipline’s immediate present by focusing on the window of time between defense and publication.

Each review will provide a summary of the author’s main arguments, the historiographic genealogy in which the author operates, and the main archival bases for his or her research.

The reviews will also be anticipatory, making educated assessments of how the research will advance or challenge our understanding of major issues in the field.
