The PRC History Group is a network of scholars with interests in the history of the People’s Republic of China.  We define history broadly, to encompass a wide variety of disciplinary approaches, and we understand the history of the PRC to include decades prior to the official change of state power in 1949.

The PRC History Group manages H-PRC, an H-Net channel that hosts scholarly discussions in addition to distributing news and announcements  of interest to PRC historians.  The Group also distributes and archives Chinese-language journals as well as the Group’s own English-language PRC History Review, which contains research articles and roundtable discussions on recent scholarship in PRC history.

We welcome all scholars, students, researchers, and others with a serious interest in PRC History.  To join the PRC History Group’s email list, just subscribe at H-PRC.


Content for prchistory.org and H-PRC is managed by an editorial team, advised by a board of directors.  You can contact the editors at editorial-prc@mail.h-net.msu.edu
