What does it mean for a cinematic work to be "Chinese"? Does it refer specifically to a work's subject, or does it also reflect considerations of language, ethnicity, nationality, ideology, or political orientation? Such questions make any single approach to a vast field like "Chinese cinema" difficult at best. Accordingly, The Oxford Handbook of Chinese Cinemas situates the term more broadly among various different phases, genres, and distinct national configurations, while taking care to address the consequences of grouping together so many disparate histories under a single banner. Offering both a platform for cross-disciplinary dialogue and a mapping of Chinese cinema as an expanded field, this Handbook presents thirty-three essays by leading researchers and scholars intent on yielding new insights and new analyses using three different methodologies. Chapters in Part I investigate the historical periodizations of the field through changing notions of national and political identity -- all the way from the industry's beginnings in the 1920s up to its current forms in contemporary Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the global diaspora. Chapters in Part II feature studies centered on the field's taxonomical formalities, including such topics as the role of the Chinese opera in technological innovation, the political logic of the "Maoist film," and the psychoanalytic formula of the kung fu action film. Finally, in Part III, focus is given to the structural elements that comprise a work's production, distribution, and reception to reveal the broader cinematic apparatuses within which these works are positioned. Taken together, the multipronged approach supports a wider platform beyond the geopolitical and linguistic limitations in existing scholarship. Expertly edited to illustrate a representative set of up to date topics and approaches, The Oxford Handbook of Chinese Cinemas provides a vital addition to a burgeoning field still in its formative stages.

《中國現代小說的史與學》由美國哈佛大學東亞語言及文明系Edward C. Henderson講座教授、中央研究院院士王德威先生主編,召集及彙整了目前在美國、加拿大、台灣、香港、中國的漢學界卓然有成的26位學者專家們,以各自的專業領域呈現出夏志清先生影響下的中國現代文學研究之變與不變,延伸與延異(演繹),播散與推陳出新,開創了「後夏志清時代」的文學典範。他們的參照、辯難、反思,在在凸顯了夏志清先生在中國現代文學批評上的開創之功。本書在夏志清先生專著的基礎下,呈現新世紀裡現代中國小說研究的動向。全書撰寫者有夏先生的門生友人、再傳或私淑弟子,也有夏濟安先生的學生和故舊,還有與夏先生時相往來的大陸、台灣、香港等地傑出學者。特別值得一提的是,半數以上的學者都畢業自美國哥倫比亞大學東亞系;哥大是夏先生曾經任教三十年的名校,也是夏志清先生的學術發揚光大的重鎮。各篇專文的作者也許未必完全遵照夏先生的路數,但他們所念玆在玆的是文學的「史」與「學」之間的關係,以及文學所承載一個時代的人文精神的脈絡。
