Latest Call for Papers!
Law and Life: Immigrant and Refugee Acts Amid White Nationalism

Guest Editors: Monisha Das Gupta (University of Hawai‘I at Mānoa) and Lynn Fujiwara (University of Oregon)
Publication Date: Planned for Spring 2020
Submission Requirements: 5,000-6,000 words (not including endnotes), due July 1, 2019

Thinking back to Lisa Lowe’s conceptualization of the Asian immigrant in relation to American citizenship, we ask how scholars, artists, and activists can conceptualize immigrant acts in the context of the surge in anti-immigration movements and white nationalist racial politics. What continuities and departures can be traced when we place this moment in the long history of Asian American cultural and political assertions against their exclusion, ejection, and expedient inclusion? This issue of Amerasia Journal seeks submissions that offer historical or contemporary examinations of Asian immigration and migrant life-making in the face of anti-immigrant movements and policies. Immigration and refugee laws and policies have differential impacts for Pacific Islanders even though they are interpellated into these frameworks. We invite submissions focusing on the specificities of colonialism, dispossession, and sovereignty for Pacific Islanders negotiating immigration and citizenship laws, which operate unevenly across the indigenous Pacific and its diaspora within and beyond the U.S. settler state.

Call for Papers: Labor and Capital (Spring 2019)

New Amerasia Journal Call for Papers--
Labor and Capital: Nineteenth Century and Beyond with Guest Editor Professor Gordon H. Chang (Stanford University)

Paper Submissions due June 30, 2018.

This issue of Amerasia Journal seeks research-based essays that address the challenge of recovering the history and lived experiences of nineteenth-century Asian workers, their families in home regions, and partners, in North America and elsewhere. Welcomed are submissions from different disciplinary approaches, including, but not limited to, history, historical sociology, anthropology/archaeology, and cultural and gender studies. Essays might rely on quantitative materials, including census records; traditional historical sources, such as contemporaneous papers and published materials; nineteenth-century cultural production, such as literature, music, and art; material culture gathered and studied by archaeologists; and forms of memory, representation, and imagination found in creative expression in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. We also encourage comparative analyses that draw out connections between nineteenth-century Asian labor experiences and contemporary labor issues facing Asian Americans and immigrants. Essays drawing from non-English sources are welcomed.

This issue will honor Chinese involvement in the completion of the first transcontinental railroad symbolically completed at Promontory Point, Utah, on May 10, 1869. 2019 will see the 150th anniversary commemorative events.

In this special issue of Amerasia Journal, we call for empirically based research papers that seek to articulate the current state and future direction of Hmong American/Diaspora Studies. We seek papers that examine Hmong Americans’ multifaceted experiences from an emic (insider/native) perspective, including, but not limited to, their experiences with racialization, racism and racial formation, politics, collective action, citizenship, education, community formation and organization, identity, transnationalism, media/art, and gender/sexuality. We especially welcome papers that situate Hmong American experiences in historical, comparative, or global contexts using interdisciplinary approaches, theoretical perspectives, innovative methods, and original data.

Call for Papers: Arab/Americas (Spring 2018)

New Amerasia Journal Call for Papers for the Arab/Americas: Locations and Iterations issue! Paper submissions due September 1st.

Guest edited by Dr. Sarah Gualtieri (USC) and Dr. Pauline Homsi Vinson (Diablo Valley College), this issue of Amerasia aims to explore the multiplicity of ways that the category “Arab American” is conceptualized, elided, or ignored. Specifically, it encourages attention to the multiplicity of ways that Arabness is expressed, mobilized, and disavowed in different Asian American and American contexts, whether political, social, artistic, or legal. We wish to consider ways in which “Arabness” is configured at different times and in different places across the Americas, including how “Arabness” is configured in relation to “Asianness” in the Americas.
