    Sinology, Sinologism, and New Sinology
    (Routledge, 2018) Gu, Ming Dong; Zhou, X.; 0000-0001-8952-5978 (Gu, MD); Gu, Ming Dong
    Sinologism is a recent cultural theory that focuses on Sinology, China–West studies, and cross-cultural knowledge production. Since its proposition at the turn of the 21st century, it has aroused substantial interest and given rise to discussions and debates both in and outside China. The special issue has selected seven articles in full or excerpted form to offer an initial introduction to the topic. ©2018 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

    The Theoretical Debate on “Sinologism”: A Rejoinder to Mr. Zhang Xiping
    (Routledge, 2019-03-28) Gu, Ming Dong; 0000-0001-8952-5978 (Gu, MD); Gu, Ming Dong
    This article is a direct response to Zhang Xiping’s criticism of Sinologism in particular and to the overall critique of Sinologism in general. With a succinct account of what Sinologism is, it provides detailed answers to a series of questions brought up by the critics. In an effort to clarify the relationship between Sinologism on the one hand and Orientalism, postcolonialism, deconstruction, New Historicism, postmodernism, and ideological theory on the other, it attempts to rethink the issues of paradigms for Sinological studies, China–West studies, and cross-cultural studies. © 2018 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
