Call for Papers: Asia Pacific Reader - Passages

About the APR
The Asia Pacific Reader (APR) (www.asiapacificreader.org) is an online interactive platform for the research, discussion and publication of academic subjects concerning the Asia-Pacific region. Research notes, opinion pieces and photography published in the APR are read by academics, students and other readers across the world. The APR is run by an interdisciplinary board of graduate and undergraduate students at the University of Toronto, and is a collaborating partner with the South Asian Development Council (SADC) (http://southasiandc.sa.utoronto.ca/).

Passages is a yearly publication organized and edited by a group of graduate and undergraduate students at the Asian Institute at the Munk School of Global Affairs. Our goal is to tap into the knowledge of students and faculty by promoting and publishing their work. To view last year’s publication of Passages, please visit http://www.asiapacificreader.org/sites/default/files/aprpassages2011.pdf
