Journal: Education About Asia
Theme: “Contemporary Postcolonial Asia”
Submission Deadline: Nov 30, 2016
Education About Asia (EAA) is the peer-reviewed teaching journal of the Association for Asian Studies. Our print and online readers include undergraduate instructors as well as high school and middle school teachers. Our articles are intended to provide educators and academics in the humanities and social sciences who are often not specialists with basic understanding of Asia-related content. Professors and high school teachers also utilize many EAA articles and essays as student readings. Qualified referees evaluate all manuscripts submitted for consideration.
We are developing a special section for spring 2017 titled “Contemporary Postcolonial Asia.” Although we hope to publish some manuscripts that focus upon post World War II-Asian Decolonization, a major emphasis of this special section will be upon contemporary Asian polities’ achievements, problems and opportunities.
Since approximately half of EAA readers teach at the undergraduate level and approximately half of readers are secondary school teachers, we seek suitable manuscripts that are useful for instructors and/or students in undergraduate survey and high school courses such as world history, economics, human geography, and cultural anthropology as well as introductory Asia-related survey courses. We are not interested in manuscripts that would be intended for upper level undergraduate courses in Asian studies. We are especially appreciative of manuscripts that are potentially useful at both the undergraduate and secondary school levels. Manuscripts selected for publication should be written in prose that is easily accessible for high school and/or undergraduate non-specialist instructors and students. We encourage prospective authors to use a prose style much closer to that of a journalist than the prose style of conventional academic journals. The number of endnotes in manuscripts should be minimal compared to what is published in more traditional scholarly journals.
Please consult Submissions to Education About Asia (http://www.asian-studies.org/Publications/EAA/Submissions) before submitting a manuscript for this special section. Please note our relatively modest feature article and teaching resources manuscript word-count ranges. Prospective authors who are unfamiliar with EAA should also read archived articles and essays available at no charge in the website.
Prospective authors are encouraged to email a 1-3 paragraph descriptions of possible manuscript ideas to Lucien Ellington, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Manuscripts for this special section should be submitted on or before November 30, 2016.
