Queer Asia (酷兒亞洲)
Editorial Collective: Chris Berry (King’s College London), John Nguyet Erni (Hong Kong Baptist University), Peter Jackson (Australian National University), Helen Hok-Sze Leung (Simon Fraser University), and Shawna Tang (University of Sydney, Australia)
The Queer Asia series opens a space for monographs and anthologies in all disciplines focusing on non-normative sexuality and gender cultures, identities and practices across all regions of Asia. Queer Studies, Queer Theory, and Transgender Studies originated in, and remain dominated by, North American and European academic circles. Yet, the separation between sexual orientation and gender identity, while relevant in the West, does not neatly apply to all Asian contexts, which are themselves complex and diverse. Growing numbers of scholars inside and beyond Asia are producing exciting and challenging work that studies Asian histories and cultures of trans and queer phenomena. The Queer Asia series—first of its kind in publishing—provides a valuable opportunity for developing and sustaining these initiatives.
