The Activist History Review invites article proposals for our January issue, “From Weinstein to Moore: Sexual Predation in American Culture.”
2017 will likely be remembered as the year when the floodgates opened. Whether we mark its beginning in 2014 with the dozens of women who spoke out against Bill Cosby’s abuse, the sixteen women who have accused President Trump of sexual assault, or the groundswell in women’s activism after the 2016 election, we are witnessing something unprecedented in 2017.
We are seeking a scholar with expertise in South Asia’s Cold War who would be interested in joining a panel on the Cold War in Asia at the AAS (Association of Asian Studies) main conference in Washington DC in late March 2018. The panel has already been accepted and includes scholars who will discuss characteristics of the Cold War in Northeast Asia and East Asia. Regrettably, the South Asia expert of the panel is no longer able to participate, and we are looking for another scholar to offer a perspective on the Cold War in that region. See below for the panel abstract.
