Translocal Chinese: East Asian Perspectives

Editor-in-Chief: Ming-Feng Liu
Translocal Chinese: East Asian Perspectives (TCEA)《海外華人研究》is a peer-reviewed English journal. It is jointly-published biannually by the Society of Overseas Chinese Studies (SOCS), Taipei, Taiwan; the Center for the Digital Archives of South Fukienese Culture and Overseas Chinese Hometowns (閩南文化與僑鄉數位典藏中心), National Quemoy University; and Brill.

A transdisciplinary journal devoted to the studies of overseas Chinese communities in all their manifestations and contestations, TCEA focuses, however, on the region of East Asia. We study overseas Chinese border crossing networks disseminated from or converged in (pen)insular countries or zones such as Japan, North and South Koreas, the Ryukyus, Taiwan, Kinmen (Quemoy), Hong Kong and Macao. We also welcome research on other mobile groups which are connected to, or whose experiences could be compared with overseas Chinese in and from East Asia.

With an international editorial board consisting of leading scholars in the field, TCEA is interested in the intersections of East Asia and global history, and in comparative approaches to issues such as long-term identity formation, state building and market development under the conditions of globalism and transnationalism. Comprehensive in scope, focal themes may include business and investment networks, migration and settlement, citizen's participation and community building, development of media and the arts, traveling and tourism, religious ideas and organization, and academic exchanges. To sum up, TCEA distinguishes itself by the focus on the crescent of East Asian (pen)insular states.

By drawing attention to the thriving region of East Asia, TCEA aims to make a critical contribution to the current studies of overseas Chinese. Wide-ranging in its fields of enquiry, TCEA publishes critical essays in anthropology, migration, economy, sociology, geography, religion, media, business, militarization, marriage, literature, cultural studies, colonial and postcolonial identity formations, etc. TCEA accepts only English submissions such as research papers, bilingual research notes, book reviews, and academic interviews. TCEA however does not exclude research on other non-Chinese mobile communities and welcomes transnational and comparative approaches to the studies of overseas Chinese.
