The Environments of East Asia aims to promote research with a combined focus on the environment and the societies of this region. Books in the series investigate the material and discursive processes and interconnected systems that shape relationships between the human and non-human: whether within national and imperial boundaries, among countries, or traversing the globe.

In addressing the complex social, cultural, and natural processes and systems that inform environmental challenges, sustainability, and resilience in East Asia, we aim to draw from the best disciplinary and cross-disciplinary methods and analyses. The series embeds East Asian Studies centrally within Environmental Studies by cultivating scholarship in a range of humanities and social science disciplines, at the intersection of those disciplines, and in collaboration with the natural sciences. The editors bring researchers from different backgrounds into active dialogue about the complexity of factors that affect ecological interconnectivity; social frameworks that manipulate nature; and ethical, philosophical, and imaginative constructions of environment and nature.

Cornell University Press and the series editors invite proposals by established and emerging scholars alike, working on the environment and East Asia (China, Hong Kong, Japan, the Korean Peninsula, Taiwan) in all historical periods and across disciplinary divides.

Our goal is to produce all titles in this series both in Open Access, for reasons of global accessibility and equity, as well as in print editions.
