Review of Culture - Macao (China) History and Culture
For the past 20 years, Review of Culture (RC) has served the needs of Chinese, Portuguese and English readers by issuing both Chinese and International (Portuguese and English) editions. A major academic quarterly dealing with Macao history and culture, RC aims to foster the exchange of ideas relating to Chinese and Western cultures, to reflect the unique identity of Macao and to stimulate ideas and discussions of topics related to Macao culture and history, establishing an intellectual forum for "Macao Studies".
RC - International edition is putting out this call for articles.
Please contact us with projects and articles that fall within our editorial guidelines. In a nutshell: Macao Studies, (Related) Sinology, Asia/China-Europe/West Encounter in the field of Humanities. More on the RC editorial guidelines in our on-line edition (see link).
