Call for Papers – Spring 2018 Issue of Asia Pacific Perspectives

Impacts of Climate Change on the Asia Pacific

The University of San Francisco Center for Asia Pacific Studies is pleased to announce a call for papers for the spring 2018 issue of Asia Pacific Perspectives. This special issue will take the theme of climate change (broadly understood) to examine environmental impacts upon the social, economic and cultural landscapes of the Asia Pacific region.

This special issue will provide a forum for research on both historical and contemporary environmental change as it has impacted China, Japan, Korea, India and the Philippines. We are particularly interested in submissions from the social sciences and humanities, with research focused on themes such as: urbanization, pollution and health; migration and movement; utilization of water, land, forests and other natural resources; environmental justice and human rights.

Papers must represent original work not already published or in press.
