Crossings: Asian Cinema and Media Culture

Poshek Fu (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) and Man-Fung Yip (University of Oklahoma)


The series “Crossings” publishes books in English and Chinese that investigate Asian cinema and media from cross-disciplinary and cross-methodological perspectives. It situates Asian cinema and media within a global or regional framework and explores different dimensions of transnationality in relation to production, distribution, and reception. It also entails trans-medial interrogations of past and present media culture, looking into the complex interactions of media forms and how they have shaped aesthetic and social practices. Wide-ranging in scope and method, the series places special emphasis on cutting-edge scholarship that draws on careful archival research or derives from vigorous, insightful theoretical study.


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