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. We particularly seek manuscripts that focus upon other cultures besides Japan. Currently, we have excellent prospects for good Japan manuscripts, but we highly desire to have a special section that encompasses a number of Asian countries. Prospective authors with sports-related manuscript ideas should contact me at l-ellington@comcast.net and also copy Managing Editor Jeffrey Melnik at edast@utc.edu.

Please consult Submissions to Education About Asia (http://www.asian-studies.org/Publications/EAA/Submissions) 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 April 20, 2016.

Cordially,
