The editors of Korea â€“ Politics, Economy and Society, published annually since 2007 by Brill (Leiden and Boston), are calling for papers for the 2011 edition of the yearbook. The Korea: Politics, Economy and Society series, edited by RÃ¼diger Frank, James E. Hoare, Patrick Koellner, and Susan Pares, is the source for up-to-date, concise information on what is happening on the Korean peninsula. It features refereed articles on political, economic, and social aspects of both South and North Korea. Its survey articles provide concise overviews of politics, the economy, and the foreign relations of both Koreas, as well as inter-Korean relations.
The editors are now inviting proposals for papers for the refereed part of the yearbook, particularly papers dealing with North Korea and inter-Korean affairs and papers analyzing Korean affairs from a comparative perspective. Papers on other topics falling within the scope of Korea â€“ Politics, Economy and Society are also welcome.
Interested scholars and graduate students should send proposals of a maximum of 500 words to Patrick KÃ¶llner (firstname.lastname@example.org) by November 30, 2010. The editors will decide by early December which proposals for papers should be developed into manuscripts (10,000 words maximum) to be submitted by February 28, 2011. The editors guarantee a speedy review of manuscripts.
Korea 2011 â€“ Politics, Economy and Society is due to be published in September 2011. For further information on the Korea: Politics, Economy and Society series, see www.brill.nl/koyb.
