Publication Date: 2009-03


Refeng Xueshu insists on the interdisciplinary perspectives and approaches and devotes itself to the construction of a public platform for interactions among studies on contemporary societies, histories, politics, economics, literature, cultures, etc.  Through these efforts of interdisciplinary interactions, we hope to discover the key problems in the contemporary China and further provide thoughtful, rigorous, and practical academic insights.
This volume “Refeng Observations” takes the viewpoint towards the social transformation as a result of the earthquake of “5.12.” “Translations & Theories” introduces Partha Chatterjee’s ideas and works.  Refeng Xueshu provides a platform for dialogs, encounters, and interactions between theories in order to formulate new theories and study paradigms.
