Volume I

Book Description

This is the inaugural edition of English in China Today at the Harbin Institute of Technology, one of China’s Ivy League Universities.

China currently has more than 2,400 public, private and joint venture colleges and universities and almost every one publishes a journal in Chinese. No Chinese college or university will accept or publish anything in any language other than Chinese.

The instant journal, now a book series, is a first of its kind, limited to scholars from one Chinese Ivy League University and provides a platform for Chinese scholars to share their ideas with the global community, in the common lingua franca, English. This is the first Chinese university journal published abroad, about English, in English.

English in China Today at the Harbin Institute of Technology provides accessible cutting-edge reports on most aspects of the language, including style, usage, dictionaries, literary language, Plain English, the Internet, English language teaching in China both as EFL and ESL, CALL, literature, culture, cross-culture communications, and translation. Its intended readership includes linguists, journalists, broadcasters, writers, publishers, teachers, advanced students of the language, university administrators and others with a professional or personal interest in communication. This journal and book series is unique in its opening up of China’s scholarly works to the English speaking world.
