Journal of China in Comparative Perspective (JCCP)

 Journal of China in Comparative Perspective (JCCP) is the only peer-reviewed bilingual journal for social scientific, hamanities and comparative studies of China in the world, published quarterly in March, June, September and December in print (ISSN 2040-0837) by Global China Press from 2014. JCCP encourages contributors to put the material about China into comparative perspective in JCCP as much as they can. JCCP will not be simply about China (there are already a large amount of excellent China journals). It will be about looking at China from a comparative viewpoint as a player in broader patterns of development, ideas, movements, networks, and systems. Comparison includes taking China as a case study of a generally applicable theory, or drawing analytic conclusions from comparative data about China and some other country or context. The comparison may be regional or global, historical or contemporary, and it may involve a comparison of perceptions, China’s perceptions of others and others’ perceptions of China in the context of China’s encounter with the outside world in the political, economic, military, and cultural sense.

Chinese for Social Sciences

Chinese for Social Sciences – These are books for the study of the Chinese language, a branch of ‘Chinese for Specific Purposes’ (CSP), for example ‘Chinese for science and technology’ or ‘business Chinese’. They will include guidance and tuition on intermediate level reading, advanced level reading, analysis of difficult sentences in English–Chinese translation or in Chinese–English translation, dictionaries of dialect/loan words in English, and phrases/glossaries for the social sciences. It is in Chinese lanuage, edited by Dr Dongning Feng, Senior Lecturer in Translation Studies, SOAS, University of London, published by Global China Press.

Corpus Approach to Chinese Social Science

With the enhancement of interdisciplinary awareness, linguistic methods, such as corpus based discourse, has been applied to sociology, ethnography, cultural studies, psychology, cognitive science and computer science, etc. In the past decade Chinese social scientists are seeking for new methods in analyzing large quantity of texts in addition to quantitative and qualitative analysis. For example, the Contemporary China Social Life Data and Research Center (CCSLC), Fudan University has collected unique set of data on contemporary Chinese social life since 1949, consists of more than 210,000 personal correspondences, over 1,000 books of personal notes, diaries, huge information of the history of personal life, as well as large amount of interview notes, and monographs. It is inevitably adopted as a default resource for the research which language matters. Inspirited by the ESRC Centre of Corpus Approaches to Social Science (CASS) at Lancaster University, CCPN Global engages the CASS, the CCSLC of Fudan University and the RCDC (the Research Centre for Discourse and Communication, Zhejiang University of Media and Communication), together developing the programme of the CACSS. The marks starting point for launching the Corpus Approach to Chinese Social Science in order tointroduce related work and engage further discussions with people who are interested in this initiative.

Global China Dialogue proceedings series

Global China Dialogue (GCD) is series of event with the key concepts ‘transculturality’ and social creativity to enhance public understanding of current global affairs and common interests via public dialogue and discussion between Chinese and non-Chinese academics, experts, professionals and practitioners and interested laypeople, from interdisciplinary and comparative perspectives. The GCD proceedings series consists of collected work from each of the Global China Dialogue, founded in 2014. It organized collaboratively by CCPN GlobalLau China Institute, King’s College London,The China Media Centre, University of Westminster, and YES (The Young Entrepreneur Society).

This volume will also be published in a combined English and Chinese edition, as will future volumes (right cover).

Global China Book Series

The idea of publishing the China and the Chinese in Comparative Perspective Book Series is a further development of China in Comparative Perspective. It was originally suggested in 2012, by Professor Martin Albrow, Honorary Vice President of the British Sociological Association (BSA) and founding Editor of International Sociology, the idea was supported by Professor ZHENG Hangsheng, the then Honorary President of the Chinese Sociological Association (CSA) and formerly Vice President of Renmin University, China. The book series expanded further as the ‘Global China Book Series’, to be edited by leading scholars in each topic. Although Professor Zheng Hangsheng sadly passed away suddenly in November 2014, all the book series, described below, will nevertheless be published in English and Chinese from 2015 by Global China Press.

Transcultural Experiences with ‘Three Eyes’ – Over the past 500 years, the contacts and exchanges between China and the West are more and more intensive, but the depth of their mutual understanding is still subject to the limitations of various factors. Due to differences in history, culture and ideological confrontation, there are still misunderstandings and even prejudices against each other. The authors of this series are Chinese, either from mainland China or Overseas Chinese, or non Chinese, offering three dimensions or perspectives (three eyes), namely time, space and place, to examine their transcultural experiences comparatively themselves, China, or the countries where they live.

Globalization of Chinese Social Sciences

China Urbanization Studies – Joseph Eugene Stiglitz, laureate of the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, once named urbanization in China and the new technical revolution led by the United States as the two great events shaping the world of the 21st century. British specialist Tom Miller refers to China’s urbanization as “the greatest migration in human history.”This book series will select the best work on Chinese urbanization from inside and outside China, featuring Chinese and non-Chinese perspectives and empirical and policy-oriented studies, as well as macroscopic and microscopic research.

Chinese Concepts – This consists include two parts: native Chinese concepts and other concepts seen from a Chinese perspective. For example, ‘society building’ was proposed by Chinese scholars based on studies of Chinese society. It made a contribution to the existing general sociological concept ‘community building. For the latter, every concept is required to have a review section on studies of non-Chinese society in order to form a contrast with the Chinese perspective. It is expected this book series will make additions to related existing studies from studying of Chinese society.

Chinese Discourse – Based on Chinese social scientific material and systematic documentation of Chinese usage patterns and methodological innovations, this book series will focus on society, culture, social interaction, communication, etc., from sociolinguistic, comparative and functionalist perspectives, discourse and conversation analysis, corpus linguistics, cognitive linguistics and typological studies. It will explore interactive mechanisms between Chinese discourse and global discourse.

Understanding China and the World – This series presents and promotes understanding of China and the world comprehensively from Chinese and non-Chinese perspectives, for example putting China in the context of globalization and other world issues.

Understanding Chinese People

Other book series are under development, e.g.

  1. Chinese Academy – This series will conduct a comprehensive review, within a global framework, of Chinese academic achievements at home and abroad over a hundred years since the foundation of the Republic of China. It will be divided into three series: disciplines (social sciences, natural sciences, humanities); countries and regions; and interdisciplinary research themes (e.g. 20 topics from the Journal of China in Comparative Perspective).
  2. Chinese Thoughts – Each of the books will focus on a topic that non-Chinese social scientists or scholars have not covered, in order to present a contrast between Chinese and non-Chinese thinking in relevant areas
  3. Chinese Experiences – Selected work from our Global China Forums will be published in this book series, which stresses experiences of China’s modernization from a comparative perspective.
  4. China Studies – This book series was published in the 1980s by New World Press. It is the first such book series by Chinese scholars in English. It will be republished jointly by New World Press and Global China Press.
  5. Chinese Overseas Ethnographic Studies – These books are written in Chinese, edited by Gao Bingzhong and published by Peking University Press. Global China Press is commissioning translation for publication in English.
