China-US Journal of Humanities, sponsored by the Center for American Studies at Southwest Jiaotong University and edited by the School of Foreign Languages at Southwest Jiaotong University in Chengdu China, has been published semi-annually from 2017. They are currently 4 issues in print. From the fifth issue, the journal will be published annually with the Canadian publisher Royal Collins.
This journal focuses on communications and exchanges in humanities studies between China and the US and serves to build an academic platform for cross-cultural understanding and exchanges in the era of globalization. It examines cultural exchanges between China and the US in the broad realms of the humanities, including comparative studies of Chinese and American literature, history, philosophy, religion, economics and politics; teaching Chinese as foreign language and teaching Chinese culture in the US; studies of Chinese Americans, and other topics. It aims to create a cultural dialogue to enhance mutual understanding and support between two world powers – China and the US – at a historical juncture when economic and political tensions between these two are on the rise.
