East Asia Forum - Call for Paper

Constructed Realities: Rethinking Intellectual Space

The East Asian Forum (EAF), now in its twelfth iteration by the Department of East Asian Studies (EAS) at the University of Toronto, Canada, is a refereed multidisciplinary journal dedicated to the study of East Asia. With contributions from graduate students the world over, the EAF enjoys a reputation for producing original graduate-level research that is at the forefront of the field of East Asian Studies.

The Forum is an annual publication featuring articles, research notes, and translations relating to East Asia. We are currently seeking original academic papers that delve into the past and present of East Asia, primarily within the field of the humanities.
Preferred areas of investigation include philosophy, religion, art, anthropology, archaeology, literature, history and culture. Scholars considering a submission are encouraged to use a multidisciplinary approach which transcends the conventional boundaries between these subjects while conforming to the topic of this year's edition.

Sponsored by the Department of East Asian Studies, whose aim is to promote interdisciplinary and cross-regional approaches, the EAF seeks submissions that strive to go beyond the cultural idioms traditionally used when discussing the region. Given
the theme, Construction of Intellectual Space, potential contributions should touch upon discussions of re/presentation, authenticity/imagination, temporal/virtual modes of being, space/place, monism/collectivism, aesthetics/ethics, nature/the body,
leisure/work, and so forth.

All contributions are peer-reviewed and subject to final approval by the editorial committee. All contributions will be considered for the Quake Prize, the annual cash publication prize presented to top scholarly article. All submissions to the EAF are considered non-exclusive, and may be submitted simultaneously to other publications.

Please consult the section "Notes to Contributors" given in the link below for stylistic and submission requirements. The deadline for submission for Volume 12 (2009 Fall) is April 6, 2009.
For questions, email us at eaf@asiapacificreader.org
