Call for Papers to be published in Korean Studies

Korean Studies seeks to further scholarship on Korea by providing a forum for discourse on timely subjects, and addresses a variety of scholarly topics through interdisciplinary and multicultural articles, book reviews, and essays in the humanities and social sciences. All scholarly articles on Korea and the Korean community abroad are welcomed, including topics of interest to the specialist and non-specialist alike. The journal is invaluable for Korea specialists as well as those whose interests touch on Korea, the Korean community abroad, or Asian, ethnic, and comparative studies.

The journal publishes new research, review articles, and book reviews about various topics within the field of Korean Studies. All articles are printed in English, and all submissions must be in English following the submission guidelines available from the journal home page.  All manuscripts should be submitted with text formatted in Times New Roman, 12-point font, single-spaced, with 1” margins, and pages numbered. Korean transliteration should conform to the McCune-Reischauer system, with the exception that the Yale romanization system may be used in linguistics articles. Original Asian characters may be included in parentheses (e.g., Korean, Chinese, Japanese) for words whose meanings may not be clear when translated into English. See previous issues for reference.

Submission Types:  Korean Studies publishes regular research articles (10,000-word limit), news and viewpoint pieces (2,000-word limit), and book reviews (1,000-word limit). Research articles may present new research findings or review current debates in a specific field. News and viewpoint pieces may take the form of responses to previously published works, either in Korean Studies or another venue. However, note that original authors will have the opportunity to review response pieces and respond with formal replies. Once a manuscript is formally accepted each manuscript will proceed through copy-editing. Once copy-editing is completed every manuscript will be uploaded to the Advance Publication site as a paper formally “In Press” [with associated DOI (Digital Object Identifier)]. It is then downloadable and citable. Formal publication in an issue of the journal, including publication year, volume and page numbers, will occur when the editor has a sufficient number of papers to complete an issue. Once all papers are accepted for an issue the manuscripts are compiled and the production process is completed, at which time the issue will be published online and in print.

Please review the complete Submission Guidelines, available online. Article submissions should be sent to the Editor: Christopher Bae, Center for Korean Studies, University of Hawai‘i.  email: Please send book review inquiries to the Book Review Editor: Ji Young Kim.  email:

Governing Marriage Migrations: Perspectives from Mainland China and Taiwan

Elena Barabantseva, Antonia Chao, and Biao Xiang, 405

Cross-border migration for the purpose of marriage is on the rise, and at present it constitutes one of the most common forms of long-term international mobility in East Asia. This special issue of Cross-Currents analyzes marriage migration in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and Taiwan as a subject of governance. The articles included here demonstrate that marriage migration has attracted considerable policy attention and public anxiety not because it is about “marriage” or “migration” per se, but because it is perceived to be inseparable from a wide range of other issues, such as sexual morality, family norms, national identity, and border security. In particular, the long-lasting social relationships marriage migration creates and the role of marriage migrants (the vast majority of whom are women) in rearing the next generation of the state’s sovereign subjects tie marriage migration to state security concerns. Popular anxieties about marriage migration are often based on projections into the future rather than observations about the present reality. On one hand, the fact that marriage migration is deeply embedded in myriad social institutions and relations that cannot be dealt with in isolation causes a projection-based mode of governance; on the other hand, it renders transnational marriage particularly hard to govern, which further exacerbates anxiety. But this should not be seen as a failure in public policy. The articles in this special issue argue that such projections, imaginations, and self-perpetuating anxieties are important parts of how nationhood is constructed in the current era. As such, marriage migration as a subject of governance provides us with a special angle to examine how politics works in subtle and sometimes invisible ways on local, national, and transnational levels.

Buddhist-Christian Dialogue: Moving Forward
Thomas Cattoi and Carol S. Anderson, vii
“Fifteen years into the twenty-first century and thirty-four years after the publication of its first issue, where does this transformed academic and cultural landscape leave a journal like Buddhist-Christian Studies? The dialogue between Buddhism and Christianity is now an integral part of the broad academic conversation in the fields of interreligious studies and comparative theology, as attested by the ongoing popularity and a growing number of interest groups at professional organizations such as the American Academy of Religion or the Catholic Theological Society of America. The Society for Buddhist-Christian Studies in North America and the European Network of Buddhist Christian Studies in Europe continue to foster academic conversation and exchange, and, as attested by this year’s News and Views section, the emergence of religious studies and interreligious dialogue in the Chinese academic world appears to be a promising development. Indeed, not only does the conversation take place at a speculative or theoretical level, but in an international context simultaneously marked by increasing secularism and religious violence, Buddhism and Christianity also offer a locus of resistance to a world where economic instability and intensifying climate change contribute to what is a de facto globalization of insecurity. At the same time, recent work in postcolonial approaches to the comparative study of religion has begun to impact religious dialogue by drawing attention to the history of the terms and assumptions that frame our questions. The journal hopes to continue to play an important role in bringing together some of the more important voices and contributions to this ongoing conversation and sharing them with the broader academic community.”

Journal of World History, Vol. 25, No. 4 2014

Special Issue in Honor of Jerry H. Bentley

Table of Contents

Matthew P. Romaniello, pp. 457-458

In the fall of 2011, Jerry Bentley, Jun Yoo, and I had a long lunch in which we batted around several ideas for celebrating the Journal of World History’s upcoming twenty-fifth anniversary. One of those ideas was to hold a conference at the University of Hawai‘i to gjwh.25.4_frontather leading figures in world history to talk about the field’s past and present. Following Jerry’s untimely passing, Jun and I scaled back some of those plans, as hosting a major conference about the journal’s contribution to the field without Jerry was difficult to envision. However, letting twenty-five years pass without any form of celebration seemed equally unfathomable. With Jerry’s dedication to the stewardship of the journal and his students’ careers, an issue of his students’ work seemed like an appropriate way to mark this anniversary.

World history has long been a core of the graduate curriculum of history at UH. Hardly any student had graduated in the past twenty-five years whom Jerry had not advised in some capacity. I began the issue by approaching the most recent graduates of our program with whom the department still had contact, and everyone readily agreed to contribute an article out of their deep respect for Jerry and his role in their development as historians. I must extend my apologies to Jerry’s many students whom I did not approach, as our space was limited. Thankfully, Alan Karras and Laura Mitchell organized a workshop in Jerry’s honor at Berkeley this past spring, which will lead to a future edited volume, as one issue of the journal is not sufficient to recognize Jerry’s tremendous impact on the field.

I thank the eight scholars here for their contributions, but I must also thank the five reviewers of the articles, each of whom read multiple submissions in a tight time frame. The collegial spirit of these world history practitioners may be one of the unseen effects of Jerry’s generous nature, but it is no less important than the work itself.
