Please send inquiries to

A publication series dedicated to the study of contemporary China, China Understandings Today (CUT) seeks to present the latest and most innovative scholarship in social sciences and the humanities to the academic community as well as the general public.

China Understandings Today invites publication proposals from scholars engaged in the study of China from historical, comparative, and/or multi-disciplinary perspectives. Editors are committed to promoting interdisciplinary studies, and to encouraging new forms of scholarship. We are also interested in quality translations of select scholarship in Chinese.

The University of Michigan Press and the Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies at the University of Michigan will provide support for manuscript development for the China Understandings Today series as well as necessary publication subventions.
