Lehigh University Press series, Studies in Christianity in China
(Series editor, Ryan Dunch, University of Alberta)

For over twenty years, Lehigh University Press has been publishing interdisciplinary, innovative scholarship on the interactions between China and Christianity. The series aims to extend the understanding not only of the missionary movement in China going back to the Jesuit mission of the sixteenth century, but also of all facets of Chinese Christian experience.  Past titles have focused on topics as diverse as Catholic martyrdom, China’s first female physicians, and the survival and post-Mao restoration of a Protestant church in the urban heart of Shanghai. The experience of women, both missionaries and Chinese Christian women, has been a particular strength of the series.

Lehigh University Press publishes its books in partnership with Rowman and Littlefield, resulting in a unique combination of small-press attention to detail with trade-press production and distribution.

Studies in Christianity in China is accepting new book manuscripts. Proposals related to any aspect of Christianity in Chinese society will be considered. Strong scholarship based on primary research from any disciplinary perspective is welcome.

Manuscript authors or editors should e-mail a detailed proposal that includes both a description of the project and chapter summaries, a brief curriculum vitae, and a sample chapter to Prof. Kate Crassons at
