The Journal of American-East Asian Relations invites submissions for the Frank Gibney Award. The Award is given by the editors to an essay in the field of American–East Asian Relations written by a graduate student and submitted by his or her supervisor. The author will receive a $1,000.00 prize and the selected article will be published in the Journal.
The Award honors the life and goals of Frank Gibney (1924–2006), president of the Pacific Basin Institute and Professor of Politics at Pomona College and an early and enthusiastic supporter of the Journal. Gibney, who wrote or edited more than a dozen books on Japan and Asia, began his study of Japan as a military intelligence officer during World War II and the Occupation of Japan. He became a correspondent and editor at Time,
Life, and Newsweek magazines, and then joined Encyclopaedia Britannica in 1966 to develop its presence in Asia.
Deadline for submissions for the 2014 Award is April 30, 2014.
Please send inquiries and submissions to Charles W. Hayford, Immediate Past Editor, at: Chayford@AOL.COM
