Asian Philosophies and Religions

Call for Publications

Theme: Asian Philosophies and Religions
Publication: Education About Asia (EAA)
Date: Special Issue (Spring 2020)
Deadline: 7.1.2020

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 are developing a special section for spring 2020 titled “Asian
Philosophies and Religions.” This special section will include a wide
variety of articles and essays on both philosophical and religious
traditions commonly associated with Asia, as well as Western
philosophies and religions such as liberal democracy, Marxism, or
Christianity that substantially affect parts of Asia. A significant
number of special section articles and essays will hopefully focus
upon contemporary practices and beliefs, as well as the impact of
Asian governments on the human and civil rights of religious
practitioners. At least two articles on religious festivals and
holidays specifically designed for middle school teachers will appear
in this special section.

Some examples of possible topics for the special section (by no means
all inclusive) include Shinto in Contemporary Japan, Hindu
Nationalism and Indian Civil Society, the People’s Republic of China
and Religious Minorities, Islam and Indonesia: Civil Society and
Politics, Christianity in Contemporary South Korea, Confucius in the
Xi Jinping era, Teaching Middle School Students about Shinto and
Buddhism in Early Japan, Asian Philosophies and Religions in World
History Survey Courses, Vietnamese Millennials and Spirituality,
Teaching Asian Philosophies and Religions through Literature, and
Teaching Asian Religious Festivals and Holidays in Middle Schools.

Please consult Submissions to Education About Asia included in the
site below before submitting a manuscript for this special section:

Please note our relatively modest 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 no charge in the website below my signature.

Since approximately half of EAA readers teach at the undergraduate
level and roughly half of readers are secondary school teachers, we
seek suitable manuscripts that are useful for instructors and/or
students in undergraduate survey and middle/high school courses such
as government, world history, economics, human geography, and
cultural anthropology as well as introductory Asia-related survey
courses including business and management classes. We are not
interested in manuscripts that would be intended for upper-level
undergraduate courses in Asian studies. We are especially
appreciative of manuscripts that are potentially useful at both the
lower-level undergraduate and secondary school levels. Manuscripts
selected for publication should be written in prose that is easily
accessible for high school and/or undergraduate non-specialist
instructors and students. We encourage prospective authors to use a
prose style much closer to that of a journalist than the prose style
of conventional academic journals. The number of endnotes in
manuscripts should be minimal compared to what is published in more
traditional scholarly journals.

Prospective authors are strongly encouraged to email me 1-3 paragraph
descriptions of possible manuscript ideas at                                                      and will receive prompt replies to queries.

Manuscripts for this special section should be submitted on or before
January 7th, 2020.
