Editorial Reviews

Review

“Rarely do collections offer both a compelling object of study and a sophisticated, portable method emanating out of concrete historical particulars. In doing so, the Modern Girl Around the World Research Group models collective feminist critique even as it illuminates new intellectual pathways and raises questions about the uneven terrain of the global and the analytical power of ‘connective comparison’ that will find interlocutors across an array of scholarly projects.”—Antoinette Burton, author of The Postcolonial Careers of Santha Rama Rau


“The study of the Modern Girl exemplified by this groundbreaking collection and research project will reconfigure the ways we understand modernity, globalization, gender, and consumption. This book is sorely needed.”—Caren Kaplan, co-editor of Between Woman and Nation: Nationalisms, Transnational Feminisms, and the State


“This is a truly revelatory work of international scope. The authors' innovative collaborative method and their theory of ‘multidirectional citation’ provide exciting new points of departure for the global history of gender formation and of everything else besides.”—Nancy F. Cott, Harvard University

More About the Author

Madeleine Y. Dong is a professor of history at the University of Washington in Seattle. Her research concerns the social and cultural history of modern China, focusing on the mid-19th century to the early twentieth century in particular. After her first book, Republican Beijing: The City and Its Histories (University of California Press, 2003), she has published two co-edited volumes, Everyday Modernity in China (University of Washington Press, 2006), and The Modern Girl Around the World (Duke University Press, 2009). She is currently writing a book on the various historical narratives of China's last dynasty, the Qing Dynasty, and she also plans to write a biography of an ordinary Chinese woman whose life experience provides a unique perspective on the drastic changes of modern China.
