MEDIA REVIEWS

"Just as transgender keeps open a radical space to rethink gender norms and variances in gay and lesbian studies, transgender in the context of China keeps open a radical space to reconsider Western assumptions about sex, sexuality, identity, and embodiment. Chiang's marvelous collection queers all these fields and areas in unexpected and compelling ways." - David L. Eng, Department of English, University of Pennsylvania and author of The Feeling of Kinship: Queer Liberalism and the Racialization of Intimacy

"This book has an impressive breadth in both historical reach and the cultural forms addressed. From historical investigations of androgyny in classical ethics and religion, eunuchism, and literary and theatrical cross-dressing to critical analyses of trans representations in contemporary popular film and the trans pride movement in Hong Kong, the collection is both intellectually exciting and politically engaged. Showcasing cutting-edge work from a new generation of early-career researchers alongside fresh material from established scholars in the field, Transgender China should be required reading for anyone interested in trans studies, Chinese cultural studies, or gender and sexuality studies in a transnational frame." - Fran Martin, Screen and Cultural Studies Program, The University of Melbourne and author of Backward Glances: Contemporary Chinese Cultures and the Female Homoerotic Imaginary
