Cultural Values in the Asia-Pacific (Extended Call)
Call for Papers Date:
GJAPS is a peer-reviewed electronic journal that showcases the original work of graduate students. The aim of GJAPS is to foster an international graduate community and support network for interdisciplinary students of Asia and the Pacific, through the publication of thought-provoking articles, visual texts, reviews and commentary that engage critical issues, themes and debates about the region and its peoples.
We cordially ask contributors to explore the theme of cultural values and its related issues in the Asia-Pacific. In addition, we are also seeking book reviews, as well as feature cover artists and reviews for the Arts and Culture editorial. This may be widely interpreted as current reviews/commentary on any field of cultural studies specific to the theme, debates, politics, art, exhibitions, film, television, music groups, performances, dance, drama, stage productions etc and must be work or reviews by current or recent graduate students.
In this call for papers, we ask contributors to explore the themes of cultural values, encouraging investigations of both contemporary and historical experiences in the Asia-Pacific that offer insights into the ways that such acts affect the lives of people and places in this region. Contributors may also want to consider the following aspects: globalization, multiculturalism, biculturalism, assimilation, marginalization, meaning and intersections of (cross-)cultural values across the Asia Pacific region at different points in time, experiences of minorities and migrant communities, value priorities, worldview frames, value differences, cross-cultural negotiations, communication tools for understanding cultural differences and similarities, as well as prevalent discourses that shape them.
Feature articles should be between 5000 and 8000 words. Reviews should be up to 1000 words.
Email submissions to the Editor, Beatrice Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org as attachments using ‘Word Template for GJAPS Authors’ (found under Notes for Contributors in our website).
