Summary Reading Chinese Transnationalisms responds to the growing interest in transnational cultural studies by examining Chinese transnationalism from a variety of perspectives. In interrogating social practices and literary and filmic texts which frequently cross national borders in imagining Chineseness, the collection's contributors also challenge received notions of Chinese transnationalism, opening up new perspectives on the topic.
