Call for Manuscripts: "Demographics, Social Policy, and Asia (Part I)"

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.

Member Book, Stahl, Trauma, Dissociation and Re-enactment in Japanese Literature and Film

Dear Colleagues,

I am happy to announce that my new book, Trauma, Dissociation and Re-enactment in Japanese Literature and Film (Routledge, 2017, ISBN: 9781138733251 238 pp.), has published.


Japanese literature and film have been approached using lenses such as language, genre and ideology. Yet, despite a succession of major social traumas that have marked, and in many ways shaped and defined much of modern Japan, Japanese fiction and cinema have not often been examined psychoanalytically.
