Call for Papers: “Constructing Masculinities” Issue of Asia Pacific Perspectives

call for papers [150-2]The University of San Francisco Center for Asia Pacific Studies is pleased to announce a call for papers for the fall 2017 issue of Asia Pacific Perspectives. The issue will explore the varied interpretations of masculine identity across Asia.

We are seeking additional papers to complement articles based on presentations at USF’s successful 2016 symposium on the topic. This issue will provide a forum for exchange of the latest research on both historical and contemporary constructions of masculinity in China, Japan, Korea, India and the Philippines. We are particularly interested in submissions from the social sciences and humanities focused on themes such as: Empire, nation and globalization; gender identity and sexuality; health, body and medicine; and masculinity in advertising, media, cinema and pop culture.

Papers must represent original work not already published or in press. For more information about Asia Pacific Perspectives, please visit our website:
