This volume gives new insights into current debates,
research topics and research approaches (theory and
methodology) related to Women’s and Gender studies in China
in the fields of history, literature, law and sociology. The
articles reflect on theoretical discourses and gender
concepts tied to specific historical and recent social
structures and developments, while at the same time
critically depict how global influences (theories, policies
and practices) are negotiated and adapted to Chinese local
circumstances. The contributions are based on the workshop
„Interdisciplinary Women’s and Gender Studies – Chinese
and German Experiences“, held at Peking University in 2013.

Mechthild Leutner is Professor of Modern Chinese
History and Culture at Freie Universität Berlin.

Zang Jian is Professor Emeritus in the Department of History
at Peking University, and as researcher affiliated with the
Center for Research on Ancient Chinese History at Peking
University and the Women’s Studies Center of Peking
