Call for Manuscripts, Asia: Biographies and Personal Stories (Part I)

Education About Asia (EAA) is the peer-reviewed teaching journal of the Association for Asian Studies. Our approximately 1,800 readers include undergraduate instructors as well as high school and middle school teachers. Our articles are intended to provide educators, who are often not specialists, with basic understanding of Asia-related content. Qualified referees evaluate all manuscripts submitted for consideration. Most of our subscribers are history, social sciences, or humanities instructors. We welcome manuscripts intended exclusively for instructors as well as manuscripts that are suitable for student reading assignments.

We are developing a special section that will be published in winter 2014 entitled “Asia: Biographies and Personal Stories (Part I)”. Authors are sought who will develop manuscripts on the contributions of influential Asians who have played significant roles in influencing historical and contemporary events, or, whose manuscripts are vivid and rich accounts of the lives and contributions of so-called "ordinary" people in Asia. We also welcome manuscripts on individuals or groups from geographical areas other than Asia who significantly impacted Asian cultures. Although we have received some promising manuscripts, we are particularly interested in more China/Taiwan, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Korea-related submissions.

Prospective authors should be aware that approximately fifty percent of our readers teach at the undergraduate level and the rest are secondary or middle school teachers. Please consult the EAA guidelines, available on the website under my signature, before submitting a manuscript for this special section. Pay particular attention to feature and teaching resources manuscript word-count ranges. Because we are interested in having a diverse array of manuscripts, we have moved the deadline for initial receipt of manuscripts to July 7, 2014. 
We welcome both feature article manuscripts and shorter teaching resource essays. Prospective authors should first carefully read author guidelines at our website below and then email me at the address in my signature if they have manuscript-related ideas or questions.
