Submissions are invited from graduate students for a special issue of the Graduate Journal of Asia-Pacific Studies: The mobilities, networks, circulation and proliferation of things.
Graduate Journal of Asia-Pacific Studies is calling for papers that examine the mobilities, networks and circulation and proliferation of things in the Asia-Pacific region. By things we mean stuff in its broadest meaning and highlight that these may be both human and/or non-human. When things move they produce and have associated affects and effects. We encourage empirical and/or theoretical contributions that relate to, but not limited to any of the following topics:
Transnational/national policy formation and transfer
Higher education e.g. the transfer of knowledge and expertise
The constitution of markets and economies, commodity/supply chains
Brand making, place making
Migration of bodies, ideas and practices.
Exhibitions, performances and events
Movement of water, animals, plants, insects etc.
We also encourage methodological contributions including but not limited to:
Assemblages, networks and translation
Commodity chains, following etc.
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.
