The Palgrave Handbook of the Catholic Church in East Asia: China, Korea, and Japan, Editors: Cindy Yik-yi Chu (Professor, Hong Kong Baptist University) and Beatrice Leung (Former Research Professor, Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages, Kaohsiung)

 

This three-section Handbook provides information on the Catholic Church in East Asia—China mainland, Mongolia, Macau, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, and Japan—from its beginnings to the present. It aims to offer sufficient material and analysis for the study and research of the East Asian Catholic Church. It follows a chronological framework tracing events from the 7th century to the 21st century. 

 

The editors are seeking authors for 7 chapters of the Korea and Japan sections of the Handbook, each of which is about 30 pages and 16,500 words.  If you are interested, please contact Cindy Yik-yi Chu at cindychu@hkbu.edu.hk

The editors would like to explain the format of publication of the Handbook, which is consisted of three sections. There will be altogether 40 chapters, which will be published in electronic format in different times. It is a Palgrave Handbook using the name of the publisher, so it should command quite some esteem. After all the 40 chapters are published electronically, the three sections will be published in the form of a hardback in 2024.
