Fei Xiaotong, the renowned Chinese polymath, recently passed away at the age of 94. Although widely recognized as the founder of modern sociology and anthropology in China, Feiís work in the fields of literary criticism, law, international diplomacy, political party organization, linguistics, history, academic institutions, and political reform have gone largely unexamined. The awesome breadth of Fei's work exemplifies the ideal of political engagement and the pervasiveness of social scientific thinking in modern China.
We are soliciting papers or other materials for a special journal issue providing a polymeniscous view of this key figure in twentieth-century Chinese history. Papers on sociology and anthropology will be considered if they touch on interdisciplinary or non-academic concerns; submissions in all other fields are strong encouraged.
Publication will be in English, but submissions in other languages, especially Chinese, will be considered.
Please send a short abstract (no more than 500 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. The deadline for abstracts is July 1, 2005. Thank you.
