The Graduate Journal of Asia-Pacific Studies has just published a new edition online.
The theme for Volume 2 Number 2 is 'Asia-Pacific Border and Boundary Crossings’ and it can be viewed at the web address shown below.
The deadline of the call for papers for the next edition on 'Imagining the Asia-Pacific' has now been extended to 31 January 2005. The call for papers reads:
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.
The Editorial Committee would appreciate it if Pacific Monitor readers could bring the journal to the attention of students and encourage them to get involved with the journal as contributors, subscribers or forum discussants.
