• Announcing the LARB China Channel

    Dear China Blog Readers,

    Thanks to a generous seed grant from the Henry Luce Foundation as well as support from the Los Angeles Review of Books, the “China Blog” will be morphing into a freestanding magazine within the magazine. The LARB China Channel will join a set of pre-existing LARB Channels (these vary widely as you can see by clicking here), so we will be in good company. We are very excited about this — “we” being the following team of editors:

    Alec Ash (Managing Editor) — read Alec’s Q&A
    Anne Henochowicz and Nick Stember (Commissioning Editors) — read Nick’s Q&A; read Anne’s Q&A 
    Eileen Cheng-yin Chow and me (Academic Editors) — read Eileen’s Q&A
    Mengfei ChenMaura Cunningham, and Jason Y. Ng (Advising Editors) — read Mengfei and Maura’s Q&A; read Jason’s Q&A
    Olivia Humphrey (Assistant Editor)

    Stay tuned for details, as we gear up to launch in the fall. The spirit of the new publication will be a lot like that of the China Blog, though with more and much more varied content. We will be working to complement rather than duplicate other good things going on in cyberspace, and to collaborate as much as possible with kindred spirit publications of the sort the editors have written for, in some cases worked for, tweet links to regularly, and so on.

    If you have ideas for pieces, the best place to send a pitch is to this general editorial email address: [email protected]

    Best wishes,
    Jeffrey Wasserstrom
