East Asia and its Periphery from 200 BCE to 1600 CE


Robert Joe Cutter

The focus of this series is the period roughly coterminous with Europe’s late Antiquity, Medieval, and Renaissance periods. We welcome manuscripts on the textual, material, and intellectual cultures of East Asia, as well as studies of hemispheric flows of ideas, texts, and artifacts between East Asian civilizations or between East Asia and other civilizations. The focus of the manuscript, however, must be on the role of a particular East Asian culture or cultures within that exchange. The series is designed to provide maximum space for any apparatus, philological or otherwise, that provides a solid and informative cultural background for texts, visual images, or other objects. This is a rigorously peer-reviewed series. Manuscripts on literature, history, visual culture, or any other humanistic discipline that rely on a substantial presentation of text or image are particularly welcome, as are scholarly translations, with full notes and explanatory materials, of important texts largely unknown to a Western audience.
