New this month:
Liu Shao-hua, “Disease Names and Stigma in the Context of the Pandemic” (March 4, 2020)
Jie Dalei, “Ideology and Sino-American Strategic Competition” (May 9, 2020)
Xiang Biao, “The Theory of ‘Concentrated Mobility’ and the ‘Gyro-Economy:’ Understanding Social Change in China through SARS and the Coronavirus” (May 21, 2020)
Liu Shao-hua’s is the first piece from Taiwan on the site treating COVID-19.
Readers who appreciated Yao Yang’s text on the new Cold War will probably enjoy Jie Dalei’s as well.
Xiang Biao’s piece is a highly original essay connecting the coronovirus and its control with the general phenomenon of movement in China.
