The Crane: Episode #16 - Wenhua Zongheng & Building Platforms for International Debate

Tings Chak joins us to discuss Wenhua Zongheng (文化纵横), a leading journal of contemporary political and cultural thought in China. 


Founded in 2008, the journal publishes issues every two months, featuring articles by a wide array of intellectuals across the country and building a platform for discussion of different ideological positions and values in China’s intellectual community. 


The publication is an important reference for debates and developments in Chinese thought, on matters ranging from China’s ancient history and traditional culture to its current socialist practices and innovations, from the important cultural trends in contemporary Chinese social life to Chinese views and analyses of the world today. 


Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research and Dongsheng have partnered with Wenhua Zongheng to publish an international edition of the journal, releasing four issues per year featuring a selection of articles that hold particular relevance for the Global South. For more, visit
