The China Heritage Project provides a focus for university-wide research on traditional China, its modern interpretations and recent scholarship. Under the direction of Geremie R Barmé, the Project advocates a 'New Sinology' that builds on traditional Sinological strengths while emphasizing a robust engagement with the complex and shifting realities of contemporary China.
The Project produces the e-journal China Heritage Quarterly. The other major related publication is East Asian History, a refereed journal edited by Benjamin Penny and produced twice annually. A continuation of Papers on Far Eastern History which dates back to the 1970s, East Asian History features research on countries throughout East Asia and highlights academic quality and visual culture in its conceptualization and design.
The Project, as well as the two journals, operate under the aegis of the Australian Centre on China in the World.
