The editors of Korea- – Politics, Economy and Society, published annually since 2007 by Brill (Leiden/Boston), are calling for papers for the 2013 edition of the yearbook (volume 7). The Korea: Politics, Economy and Society series is a source for up-to-date, concise information on the Korean peninsula. It features refereed articles on political, economic, and social aspects of both South and North Korea, while 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 – Ruediger Frank, James E. Hoare, Patrick Koellner, and Susan Pares – invite proposals for papers for the refereed part of the yearbook. The editors are particularly interested in 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- – Politics, Economy and Society are also very welcome.
Interested scholars and graduate students should send proposals of no feweer than 500 words to Professor Patrick Koellner (email@example.com) by October 20, 2012. The editors will decide in early November which proposals should be developed into manuscripts (10,000 words maximum) to be submitted by February 28, 2013.
The volume is due to be published in September 2013. For further information on the Korea: Politics, Economy and Society series, see http://www.brill.nl/koyb.
