Translocal Chinese: East Asian Perspectives
ISSN (printed): 2452-2007. ISSN (electronic): 2452-2015.
Translocal Chinese: East Asian Perspectives (TCEA) is a peer-reviewed bilingual (English and Chinese) journal that is jointly-published biannually by the Society of Overseas Chinese Studies (SOCS), Taipei, Taiwan, the Research Center for the Overseas Chinese (RCOC), Department of East Asia Studies, National Taiwan Normal 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.
