Yale-NUS College is hosting a two-day conference to mark the centenary of the Russian Revolution -- The Asian Arc of the Russian Revolution: Setting the East Ablaze? It explores the trajectory of the revolution across the Asian continent, from the Caucasus to the Pacific. The conference examines how the revolutionary wave mingled with cross-currents of nationalism, religion, ethnicity and culture, as Asian peoples reinterpreted and refashioned the events in Russia. It features early-career and leading scholars from throughout Asia, France, Russia, Australia and the United States.

Education About Asia (EAA) is the peer-reviewed teaching journal of the Association for Asian Studies. Our print and online 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. Professors and high school teachers also utilize many EAA articles and essays as student readings. Qualified referees evaluate all manuscripts submitted for consideration.

We look forward to receiving proposals from both new and established scholars who have ideas for interesting book projects.
