Hosted by: Ronald Suleski (Suffolk University, US)

We are proud to launch a website devoted to the literature and culture of modern Manchuria, or the Northeast of China. Cofounded and edited by Norman Smith and Miya Xie and on-line with the University of Guelph, this website brings together academics from Canada, China, Czechia, Japan, Korea, Malta, Taiwan, and the United States to post translations, original sources, and web materials that shed important critical light on a region of great importance to East Asia's modern history. Join us for the launch and a discussion with the Editors, who will also introduce their recent publications.
