China-US Journal of Humanities (Issue 5) (Paperback)
China-US Journal of Humanities focuses on communications and exchanges in humanities studies between China and the US and serves to build an academic platform for cross-cultural understanding and exchanges in the era of globalization. It examines cultural exchanges between China and the US in the broad realms of the humanities, including comparative studies of Chinese and American literature, history, philosophy, religion, economics, and politics; teaching Chinese as a foreign language and teaching Chinese culture in the US; studies of Chinese Americans, and other topics. It aims to create a cultural dialogue to enhance mutual understanding and support between two world powers—China and the US—at a historical juncture when economic and political tensions between these two are on the rise.
