Call for Papers: Recent Research on North and South Korea

Cross-Currents logoThe 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.
