Call for Applications: Boundary Pushing in Asian Studies – A Workshop to Prepare Articles for Publication

Organized under the auspices of The Journal of Asian Studies to help increase the range, breadth and quality of journal article manuscripts, the theme for this workshop is “Boundary Pushing.” Significant new work in Asian Studies often runs counter to or across traditional categories of scholarly conversation. For this reason, work that pushes boundaries is often difficult to frame effectively for publication. The workshop is designed and conducted by the editors of JAS to help early career scholars prepare manuscripts for successful peer review.

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.

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.

Call for Submissions: The Southeast Asian Movement at Yale’s Publication

For the inaugural issue of The Southeast Asian Movement at Yale’s publication, we are looking for academic articles, op-eds, personal essays, and creative writing that take on the question of translation in a Southeast Asian context. Submissions accepted on a rolling basis.

Translation refers not only to the act or rendering the meaning of a word or text in another language, but can also refer to the conversion of something from one medium to another, or the process of moving something from one place to another.

We are interested in writing that engages with this sense of movement across linguistic, geographical, or political spheres. We welcome submissions from graduate and undergraduate students from all institutions, and look forward to reading your work and cultivating conversations about Southeast Asia at Yale and beyond.

Open Deadlines
