Call for Manuscripts: "Sports, Culture, and Asia"

Lucien Ellington's picture

Education About Asia (EAA) is the peer-reviewed teaching journal of the Association for Asian Studies. Our online and print readers include undergraduate instructors as well as high school and middle school teachers. Our articles are intended to provide educators and academics in the humanities and social sciences who are often not specialists with basic understanding of Asia-related content. Teachers and professors also utilize many EAA articles and essays as student readings.  Qualified referees evaluate all manuscripts submitted for consideration.

We are developing a special section for fall 2016 entitled “Sports, Culture, and Asia.” Authors are invited to submit manuscripts on the historical and contemporary roles and influence of sports on Asian culture.

Since approximately half of EAA readers teach at the undergraduate level, we seek suitable manuscripts that are useful for instructors and/or students in undergraduate survey courses such as world history, economics, and cultural anthropology as well as introductory Asia-related survey courses. We are especially appreciative of manuscripts that are potentially useful at both the undergraduate and secondary school levels. Manuscripts selected for publication should be written in prose that is easily accessible for high school and/or undergraduate non-specialist instructors and students. The number of endnotes in manuscripts should be minimal compared to what is published in more traditional scholarly journals.

Please consult Submissions to Education About Asia ( before submitting a manuscript for this special section. Pay particular attention to feature article and teaching resources manuscript word-count ranges.  Prospective authors who are unfamiliar with EAA should also read archived articles and essays available at the website below my signature.

Manuscripts for this special section should be submitted on or before March 31, 2016. Prospective authors are encouraged to contact me at
