Asian & Asian American Studies

Excellence in Scholarship and Learning


Sussex Library of Asian & Asian American Studies Titles


The Sussex Library of Asian and Asian American Studies publishes original scholarly work in various disciplines (including interdisciplinary and transnational approaches) under the rubric of Asian and Asian American studies – particularly Economics, Education, Religion, History, Politics, and Gender. The Series is keen to publish in emerging topics that demand attention in the Asian and Asian American context – from the politics of dress in Asia and the Americas to the heteronormative in India and Indonesia. Seminal works and approaches will find a home here. The deliberate strategy to combine two fields (Asian Studies and Asian American Studies) which are normally separated is testimony to our approach to support new approaches and perspectives in the scholarship about Asia whether or not the Asian subject is located in Asia or elsewhere. The Series also welcomes single-country studies or anthologies that explore one important theme across a number of Asian contexts or analysis of major themes in Asian American history or cultural studies. The Series contributes to scholarly debates on topical issues, highlighting the importance of the region in the Asian century and reflecting the rise of Asian American studies in the United States.
