CFP – Forest & Society Special Section – Flood Governance in the Asia-Pacific: Risk, Politics, and Resilience

In this special issue, we aim to engage theoretically and empirically towards a greater understanding of flooding and its relationship to vulnerability and resilience in the Asia-Pacific region. This includes a critical examination of existing FRM models and practices, as well as the various politics and discourses that shape the complexity of flood regimes and governing systems.

Asia Pacific Flows is calling for manuscripts!

This new series seeks to critically engage with the well-established notion of “flows,” highlighting the dynamism behind their physical, cultural, economic, and political connections, and the entangled relationships and disruptions that characterize them. Its approach will be multi-disciplinary and its area of research multi-sited across the Asia Pacific, within Asia, and within the Pacific, now and in the past. The series encourages works that craft a space for new paradigms that examine and problematize concepts like regionality and boundary.

Contact Series Editors: Patricio Abinales ( & Alex Mawyer ( for inquiries and proposals.

CFP – Justice in Translation

The Justice in Southeast Asia Lab (JSEALab) is calling for submissions to Justice in Translation, a web publication series that will publish one short-to-medium length translation [up to 10,000 words] from a Southeast Asian language to English each month. This may be a law, a court decision, an essay, a short story, a poem, a protest declaration, etc. — any piece that a given translator would like to share with a broad, English-reading audience including scholars, practitioners, journalists, and others. Translators should provide a short [500-1000 words] introduction to their translation elaborating its context and significance. Accepted and published translations will receive a 100 USD honorarium.

Send submissions and questions to:

CFP – Georgetown Journal of Asian Affairs

The editorial board of the Georgetown Journal of Asian Affairs, an open-access peer reviewed journal and the flagship publication of the Asian Studies Program at Georgetown University is currently accepting research manuscripts from students and scholars for Volume 8 (Spring 2022).

The Journal welcomes original social science research papers written on issues relevant to politics, security, economy, culture, and society of contemporary Asia, including Pakistan and Afghanistan. Our publication highlights the works of young scholars alongside those of well-established experts, providing a valuable opportunity for graduate students to expand upon their academic portfolio.

All submissions should be 5,000-7,000 words in length. For more details on our formatting guidelines and expectations, please forward the attached “Instructions for Contributors” file or refer to the “Notice to Contributors” section on our website. For any points not addressed therein, we welcome questions and comments sent to our email (

Human Geography CFP for scholars from, in, and of Thailand, Laos and Cambodia

The journal is non-profit – proceeds from its low subscription cost go toward funding radical scholarship (along with covering the journal’s operating costs).

Since the publication of its first volume in 2008, Human Geography has attracted a great deal of interest from critical scholars and the journal has grown in readership. Unfortunately, though, much of the scholarship has focused on North America and Europe. As the current regional editor for East and Southeast Asia, I am seeking to change this by encouraging more submissions from scholars working in and on the region.
We welcome a range of types of submissions. These include traditional research papers of 8000 words as well as special issues. The journal also invites shorter opinion pieces of up to 3000 words. These are focused on timely issues and published much more quickly.

CFP: MANUSYA: Journal of Humanities (Open Access journal published by Chulalongkorn University in collaboration with Brill)

Manusya provides a platform for researchers to engage in intellectual enquiries on humanities issues in Southeast Asia and its neighbouring regions; or broader phenomena with implications for Southeast Asia or from Southeast Asian perspectives.
