The editorial board of Cross-Currents: East Asian History and Culture Review is seeking research articles for its June 2018 special issue, dedicated to “Recent Research on North and South Korea.” The deadline for submitting manuscripts for this issue is December 15, 2017.
Cross-Currents, a peer-reviewed, open-access, quarterly online (and semi-annual print) journal, is a joint project of the Research Institute of Korean Studies at Korea University and the Institute of East Asian Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.
The journal publishes up-to-date research findings, emerging trends, and cutting-edge perspectives concerning East Asian history and culture from scholars in both English-speaking and Asian language-speaking academic communities. It seeks to balance issues traditionally addressed by Western humanities and social science journals with issues of immediate concern to scholars in China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam.
Embedded in a Web-based platform with functions for collaboration, discussion, and an innovative publishing process, the e-journal uses new technologies to facilitate a dialogue among East Asia scholars around the world that is enhanced by audio-visual and multilingual capabilities. Print issues of Cross-Currents (from the University of Hawai‘i Press) feature research articles from the online journal.
