Crossing Seas

Editors: Henry Yu (University of British Columbia) and Elizabeth Sinn (University of Hong Kong)


The Crossing Seas series brings together books that investigate Chinese migration from the migrants’ perspective. As migrants traveled from one destination to another throughout their lifetime, they created and maintained layers of different networks. Along the way these migrants also dispersed, recreated, and adapted their cultural practices. To study these different networks, the series publishes books in disciplines such as history, women’s studies, geography, cultural anthropology, and archaeology and prominently features publications informed by interdisciplinary approaches that focus on multiple aspects of the migration processes.


Inquiries and submissions should be directed to Kenneth Yung at Hong Kong University Press.
