In this special issue of the Graduate Journal of Asia-Pacific Studies we ask contributors to explore these questions of convergence and divergence. Contributors are encouraged to think about these issues not simply in relation to the well trodden territory of globalisation but also with reference to historical and contemporary experiences of (neo)colonialism, neo-liberalism, sexism, racism and nationalism.
Contributions are welcome from all fields of the arts, social sciences, and humanities, including anthropology, literature, art history and visual culture, film and media, cultural studies, gender studies, geography, queer theory, history, linguistics, political studies, psychology, and sociology. GJAPS interprets the designation "Asia-Pacific" in the broadest possible sense, to encompass East, Northeast and Southeast Asia, the Malay Archipelago, Australasia, Polynesia and Oceania, the West Coast of the Americas, including California, the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, British Columbia, Central and South America.
