CFP: US, Asia, and the World: 1914–2012

Call for Manuscripts: “US, Asia, and the World: 1914–2012” EAA Winter 2012

Education About Asia (EAA) is the peer-reviewed teaching journal of the Association for Asian Studies. Our approximately 1,800 readers include undergraduate instructors as well as high school and middle school teachers. Our articles are intended to provide educators, who are often not specialists, with basic understanding of Asia-related content. Qualified referees evaluate all manuscripts submitted for consideration. Most of our subscribers teach history, the social sciences, or the humanities.

We are in the process of developing a special section entitled “US, Asia, and the World: 1914–2012” for the winter 2012 issue of EAA. In this special section, we invite authors to submit manuscripts that encompass a wide range of US-Asia topics that focus upon interactions and significant events drawing from diverse areas of study including the arts, diplomacy and politics, economics, military history, and society and culture. We are looking for manuscripts concerning all areas of Asia. We seek manuscripts both from historians of Asia and scholars and teachers with expertise on the US and other parts of the world. We are interested in manuscripts on topics such as “Asia and the War to End All Wars,” “The Pacific War and How It Changed the World,” “The US, China, and Taiwan,” “Nixon’s Visit to China,” “The Rise of Buddhism in the US,” “The US, Southeast Asia, and the Cold War,” “How East Asia’s Postwar Rise Changed America,” and “US-India Relations Before and After 1991.” The topics listed in this post are offered only as examples and authors who are interested in other topics are encouraged to contact the editor.

Prospective authors should be aware that approximately fifty percent of our readers teach at the undergraduate level and the rest are secondary or middle school teachers. Please consult the EAA guidelines, available on the website under my signature before submitting a manuscript for this special section. Pay particular attention to feature and teaching resources manuscript word-count ranges. Prospective authors are also encouraged to share possible manuscript ideas with Lucien Ellington via email. The deadline for initial submission of manuscripts is July 20, 2012.
