Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


This editorial is an overview of this edition of the Journal of East Asian Popular Culture. It features a thematic section guest-edited by Yan Ying and Weiqing Xiao on ‘Chinese Popular Culture in Translation and Transmission’. Five articles share a focus on the lived experience of the producers and consumers engaged in ‘translation and transmission’ of popular culture in the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Two general papers complement this thematic section and illustrate the nature of translation and transmission of culture as a two-way process. The book reviews section features commentary on recently published works that relate to themes discussed in the research articles.
