The School of Modern Languages and Cultures has an active research culture that draws Faculty and Graduate Students into collaborative projects.

Our key research interests are in the cultural, anthropological, political, philosophical, historical and literary aspects of diverse countries in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

We explore the ancient, modern and contemporary contexts of social and cultural change around the globe and publish our research in diverse languages of the world.

This breadth of regions, languages, cultures and disciplines is the foundation of the School’s research strength in interdisciplinary and comparative research projects.

Global Connections

SMLC Book Series with Hong Kong University Press

Series Editor: Dixon H. W. Wong

The Global Connections series explores the movement of ideas, people, technologies, capital and goods across national and regional borders. Books in the series reveal how these interconnections have the power to produce new global forms of cultures, politics, identities and economies. Seeking to explore the dynamics of change, the series includes both historical and contemporary topics. It focuses on interactions between the world's diverse cultures through the production of new interdisciplinary knowledge.

Global Connections welcomes submissions to the series from authors working on sole authored or edited volumes. The series has published in Chinese and English at this point but welcomes authors working in other languages as well.

Contact the Editor, Dixon Wong in the first instance to discuss your proposal.
