SEAC will provide partial financial assistance for presenters to attend the meetings.

Issue 7.1: OPEN ISSUE
This open issue invites essays related to the broader project of Verge: Studies in Global Asias, which showcases scholarship on “Asian” topics from across the humanities and humanistic social sciences, while recognizing that the changing scope of “Asia” as a concept and method is today an object of vital critical concern.
CFP – Verge Special Issue 7.2: Digital Asias – Deadlines: October 1, 2019 (Convergence); May 1, 2020 (Essays)
We have been willing participants in our own digital colonization. This digitalization has some historical roots in Asia and today is routed through Asia. It is saturated in stereotypical techno-orientalist images of a futuristic Asia, and proliferates through Asian media, finance capital, and artistic production.
Books in the series broaden the discussions of the relationship between migration and globalization, transnationalism, development, governance, inter-cultural studies, and identity and diaspora. They address specific social and cultural dynamics – such as gender relations, population, family and marriage patterns, new class formation, and the transformation of cultural values – that have been brought by Asian migration.
This year, Brill has launched a new, interdisciplinary and peer-reviewed scholarly journal concerned with the application of historical knowledge and insights to current matters: the Journal of Applied History. Unlike other journals, the Journal of Applied History offers a platform for articles in which the results of historical research are applied to present-day issues. By connecting historical case studies to contemporary concerns and (or) future possibilities, authors are asked to make an explicit connection between past, present and future.
JVS considers all manuscripts on the strict condition that they have been submitted only to JVS, that they have not been published already (including in another language), nor are they under consideration for publication or in press elsewhere. Articles for Journal of Vietnamese Studies should generally be 8,000 to 15,000 words, not including all endnotes and references.
