Call for Manuscripts/Book Proposals – Routledge Series on Asian Migration – Routledge – No deadline

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.

Call for Articles for a new journal: The Journal of Applied History – No deadline

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.

CFP – Journal of Vietnamese Studies – No Deadline

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.
