In 2007, Shu-mei Shih defined Sinophone as Sinitic-language cultures outside of China or on the margins of Chineseness, forming emergent affinities with such fields as postcolonial studies, ethnic studies, and queer theory. To commemorate a decade of rich developments in the field, panelists discuss new directions in which Sinophone studies can expand across different paradigms.
