NTU & HYI Academic Book Series

The series, published by National Taiwan University Press, is a collaboration between the Harvard-Yenching Institute and the College of Liberal Arts of National Taiwan University. The Series publishes scholarly monographs in Chinese which make a major original contribution to the humanities and social sciences. Interdisciplinary studies are especially welcome. Submissions are encouraged from all Chinese-speaking regions and beyond.  For more information, visit their website. The series is edited by Lisa Chi.


Responding to the urgent need for an interdisciplinary, high-quality, peer-reviewed and independent academic publication in Vietnam, the Harvard-Yenching Institute now supports a scholarly series that concentrates on various disciplines of the humanities and social sciences. The first three-year plan of the series includes volumes on anthropology, literature, sociology, history and archaeology, philosophy and religion, and cultural studies. Six books dedicated to these disciplines will be printed in Vietnamese. The first book in anthropology, The Transformation of Religions and Religious Beliefs in Vietnam Today, came out in November 2008.

The second book in the series is titled Literary study in Vietnam: Possibilities and Challenges and was published in November 2009.
