CFP: Asian Culture(s) and Globalization

Papers are invited for publication in a special issue entitled "Asian Culture(s) and Globalization" -- edited by I-Chun Wang (National Sun Yat-sen U) -- of CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture (ISSN 1481-4374). A humanities and social sciences quarterly published since 1999 by Purdue University Press, the journal is peer-reviewed, in full-text, in open-access, and ISI-AHCI, MLA, Scopus, etc., indexed.

"Asian Culture(s) and Globalization" is not concerned with East meeting West; rather, it pays attention to aspects of Asian culture(s) in transformation owing to the impact of globalization. During the past thirty years, scholars and critics have noticed the transformation of Asian culture(s), its resistant voices, and the redefinition of local cultures. As the largest and most populous continent, Asia is home to a large number of languages and cultures: Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Pacific Islanders, etc., contributions of cultural products and thought represent a significant part of today's global culture. Authors of the issue discuss redefined regional cultures in the context of globalization in the fields of literature, education, music, urban studies, cinema, gender studies, sociology, history, and related fields in the context of comparative cultural studies.

Papers are 6000-7000 words in length and in the MLA parenthetical sources and works cited format (but no footnotes or end notes): for the style guide of the journal consult .
