Graduate Journal of Asia Pacific Studies
Call for papers: 'Imagining the Asia Pacific'
Call for Papers Date:
The Graduate Journal of Asia-Pacific Studies is currently accepting article and review submissions from graduate students that engage with the following themes:
"Imagining the Asia-Pacific"
The deadline for submissions is 31, October 2004.
The Asia-Pacific with its vast assortment of interwoven peoples, places and cultures has long been a site of fascination for academics and artists alike. Characterized by fluidity, diversity and the coexistence of contrasting visions and interpretations of the past, present and future, the region and its many component parts offer fertile ground for the imaginative process. Those who observe and attempt to interpret for others the myriad symbols, rituals and stories that exist within the region inevitably participate in the ongoing imagination and construction of individual and collective identities. At the same time such attempts to explain and describe often reveal as much about the imaginative processes and priorities of those who produce the discourse as they do about the Asia-Pacific itself.
The Graduate Journal of Asia-Pacific Studies invites submissions from all humanities and visual arts disciplines which offer a creative articulation of how some or other part of Asia-Pacific existence is imagined. Contributors are actively encouraged to be innovative in their use of theory, methodology and/or the visual and multimedia possibilities of electronic publishing.
