EACS Publications

The EACS has produced different kinds of publications.

1) Newsletters and Surveys of China studies in different countries

In 1978, the EACS began to publish Occasional Papers, but very few issues appeared. In 1987 the EACS started to publish several surveys which were originally called Newsletters, including:

At the beginning of the 1990s a list of EACS members and their publications was compiled in Paris: Bibliographie des Publications Recentes sur la Chine des membres de L'Association Européenne d'Etudes Chinoises, préparé par Viviane Alleton, Thomas Nilsson, Paris: Institut des Hautes Études Chinoises du Collège de France, 1992.

The current EACS Newsletter (A5, 16-40 pages) was started in December 1993. Thirty issues were published in the following ten years. Since March 1996 (No. 9) it has been  available online.

2) Conferences volumes

In addition to the surveys some conference volumes have been published. They were often edited by the local conference organisers and published by different publishers, sometimes as special issues of academic journals:

  • Proceedings of the Conference of Junior Sinologues held at Leiden: April 8-14, 1949, 1950
