Call for Papers
Sibirica: Journal of Siberian Studies
New to Taylor & Francis in 2002
We would like to invite you to contribute to Sibirica: Journal of Siberian Studies. This journal is devoted to Russia in the Asia-Pacific region: the vast territories of Russia itself in the region, including Siberia and the Russian Far East, and also Russia’s relations with other countries in the region, including Japan, China, Korea and the United States, where Alaska was Russian territory for many decades. The region is of growing global importance, in economic terms, especially as a source of raw materials, and in strategic terms, with many unresolved disputes, including those between Russia and Japan over the Kurile Islands, and continuing Russian-Chinese rivalry. The many, varied aboriginal peoples of the region are of the greatest interest to scholars of anthropology and language; and the changing relationship between European Russia and its huge eastern territories is a key issue for political scientists of the former Soviet Union. Sibirica considers all aspects of the region - it is broadly based and pan-disciplinary, and draws on contributions from a wide range of subjects, including history, politics, international relations, strategic studies, economics, geography and environmental studies, sociology, ethnography, anthropology, language and literature, and cultural studies.
