University of California Press

The first chapter presents Funü shibao in its historical and print context. It emphasizes Funü shibao’s innovativeness in order to highlight both the distinctiveness of the journal and the range of possibilities that existed in this period. Focusing on the remarkable resources of its publisher and the cultural ingenuity of its editor, it also situates the journal within revolutionary and early Republican politics. It excavates the journal’s often implicit political agenda and introduces some of its key female and male contributors. The chapter further outlines the cultural and historical methodology for reading the periodical press that is used throughout the book. This method focuses on the intermediality of the journal itself, its dialogue with other print products, and its position within larger cultural debates and historical developments.

Keywords:   modern China, periodical press, cultural history, methodology, early Republic, politics, Bao Tianxiao
