Modern Chinese Literature and Culture (ISSN # 1520-9857), formerly Modern Chinese Literature (1984-1998), is a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal devoted to the culture of modern and contemporary China, with "China" understood not in the narrow, political sense. The journal publishes on literature of all genres, film and television, popular culture, performance and visual art, print and material culture, etc. MCLC is edited by Kirk A. Denton at the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures, The Ohio State University. Publication of the journal is generously supported by the East Asian Studies Center and the Institute for Chinese Studies at The Ohio State University. Vol. 11 was made possible with a generous grant from the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation. MCLC is listed in the Arts and Humanities Citation Index. Back issues (with a three year gap) are available through JSTOR. Beginning in fall 2003, book reviews (see "MCLC Book Reviews" below) no longer appeared in the print journal; instead, they are published on the MCLC Resource Center, a website devoted to modern China cultural studies and affiliated with the journal. Information on book review submission can be found in the "Submission" page below. The MCLC Resource Center also has an online publication series that complements the publications in the print journal.
