This Handbook offers a rich survey of topics concerning historical, modern and contemporary Chinese genders and sexualities.

Exploring gender and sexuality as key dimensions of China’s modernisation and globalisation, this Handbook effectively situates Chinese gender and sexuality in transnational and transcultural contexts. It also spotlights nonnormative practices and emancipatory potentials within mainstream, heterosexual-dominated and patriarchally structured settings. It serves as a definitive study, research and resource guide for emerging gender and sexuality issues in the Chinese-speaking world. This Handbook covers interdisciplinary methodologies, perspectives and topics, including:

  • History
  • Literature
  • Art
  • Fashion
  • Migration
  • Translation
  • Sex and desire
  • Film and television
  • Digital media
  • Star and fan cultures
  • Fantasies and lives of women and LGBTQ+ groups
  • Social movements
  • Transnational feminist and queer politics

Paying acute attention to nonnormative genders and sexualities and emphasising the intersectionality of gender, sexuality, nationality, ethnicity and class, this Handbook offers an essential, field-defining text to Chinese gender and sexuality studies.
