The Editors of Asia Pacific Perspectives invite scholars and advanced graduate students to submit papers for publication in our fall 2014 issue. This issue will be guest edited by Dayna Barnes, 2014-2015 Kiriyama Fellow at the University of San Francisco Center for the Pacific Rim.

Asia Pacific Perspectives (ISSN: 2167-1699) is a peer-reviewed electronic journal published twice a year by the University of San Francisco Center for the Pacific Rim. Our task is to inform public opinion through publications that express divergent views and ideas that promote cross-cultural understanding, tolerance, and the dissemination of knowledge.  The journal offers a forum for the exchange of ideas from both established scholars in the field and graduate students. It welcomes submissions from all fields of the social sciences and the humanities. Papers adopting a comparative, interdisciplinary approach to issues of interrelatedness in the Asia Pacific region will be especially welcome.

Guest editor Dayna Barnes is a specialist in international history and US-Japan relations. She has taught at the London School of Economics, the University of Winchester, San Francisco State University and the University of San Francisco. Before coming to USF, Dr Barnes held positions as junior fellow at LSE IDEAS and visiting researcher at Tokyo University.
