HONG KONG STUDIES - Call for Papers

Hong Kong Studies (published by The Chinese University Press) is now accepting articles and reviews written in English or traditional Chinese for a general issue of the journal, tentatively scheduled for publication in the first half of 2022. Hong Kong Studies is the first bilingual academic journal to focus on Hong Kong from an interdisciplinary perspective. The editors believe that the timely expansion of the field of Hong Kong Studies warrants a journal of its own, in order to provide a focused platform for facilitating exchange between different disciplines and viewpoints in relation to Hong Kong. We welcome papers from multiple fields in the humanities and the social sciences, including but not limited to literature, linguistics, cultural studies, philosophy, sociology, politics, history, education, and gender studies. We also encourage intersectional and cross-disciplinary dialogues on Hong Kong affairs.

Articles no longer than 6,000 words in English and 8,000 words in Chinese (including footnotes but excluding bibliography) and scholarly reviews (books, films, performances) between 1,200 and 2,000 words should be sent to before 30 June 2021 for consideration. If you are interested in writing a review for Hong Kong Studies, please first write to the editors to discuss the suitability of the selected item. When submitting your work, please follow our style sheet available here: Please also provide an abstract of 250 words and a short biographical note of no more than 50 words on a separate page. Submissions will be double-blind reviewed.
