CfP: North East Asian Anthologies Book Series

Svetla Dimitrova's picture
This is a call for contributions to North East Asian Anthropologies, a new book series at Amsterdam University Press, co-edited by Caroline Humphrey (Cambridge) and Franck Billé (UC Berkeley).
This series showcases groundbreaking anthropological research on North East Asia, a vast region encompassing the Russian Far East, Siberia, northern China, Mongolia, Japan, and Korea.
Despite the region's strategic significance, studies of North East Asia remain fragmented and pigeonholed within the academic traditions of Eastern European, postsocialist and Asian studies. The series seeks to address this gap by publishing innovative monographs and edited volumes spanning the region beyond national boundaries. Ranging from migration and crossborder trade to urban development and climate change, the series foregrounds contemporary and emerging issues, and makes critical interventions in both regional studies and in the field of anthropology.
