The Continent Magazine Digital Archive

Respected scholarly journal covering a wide range of social sciences disciplines

The Continent Magazine (大陸雜誌 [Dalu Zazhi]) presented the work of leading Taiwanese and foreign scholars in the fields of history, classics, philosophy, literature, religion, anthropology, sociology, political science, economics, textual research, and fine arts, with a general focus on Chinese culture and greater China. The journal also included articles covering the natural and applied sciences. Published from 1950-2002, The Continent was founded in the wake of Mainland China’s Maoist revolution by leading scholars of Taiwan’s most prestigious academic institution, the Academia Sinica (Zhu Jiahua, Dong Zuobin, Li Ji, Guo Ting Yi, Ling Chun Sheng, and others) and was seen by its founders as a beacon of uncensored sinology and research by Chinese scholars that was not possible in the People’s Republic. The Continent Magazine digital archive is full-image full-text searchable and includes the entire run of the publication, spanning 52 years and all 867 issues.
