Critical Asian Studies seeks Editor to succeed Tom Fenton

August 18, 2017 - 14:31

Critical Asian Studies seeks to fill the position of Editor beginning with Volume 47 (2015), succeeding Tom Fenton, who will be stepping down as editor of Critical Asian Studies at the end of 2015. The position will be half-time with flexible hours and in the Editor’s home or institutional office. Compensation will be based on experience. Following a one-year transition period, the appointment will be open-ended subject to annual performance reviews.
Critical Asian Studies (formerly the Bulletin of Concerned Asian Scholars) is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal that since 1967 has published unsolicited and solicited articles, essays, reviews, translations, interviews, photo essays, and letters about Asia and the Pacific, including analyses that transcend national borders, that focus on relations of power and domination in the Asia-Pacific region, and that examine the fractures that divide Asian societies. In so doing, the journal frequently challenges accepted formulas for understanding the Asia and Pacific regions, the world, and ourselves. Published now by Routledge Journals, part of the Taylor & Francis Group, Critical Asian Studies remains true to the mission articulated at its founding “to develop a humane and knowledgeable understanding of Asian societies and their efforts to maintain cultural integrity and to confront such problems as poverty, oppression, and imperialism.” 
The start date is a
 period of transition in fall 2015, with assumption of full responsibilities as of 1 January 2016. Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis. Review of applications will begin September 1, 2014.
