Also, the Asian Studies Wire updates information on “call for papers”, “write for blogs” and many other useful and fun things about Asian Studies. An example of calling for paper in its most recent updates:
Call for Papers: Social Movements and World-System Transformation: Prospects and Challenges<http://georgetown.
An important innovation in the 38th Conference of the Political Economy of the World-System (PEWS) is that we recognize that world-systemic transformation requires new practices that consciously resist reproducing the boundaries, hierarchies, and exclusions of the existing order. Thus, this conference will model relationships and practices that might better advance knowledge and learning about the world-system and its transformation by including both scholars and social movement organizers in the workshop and by working to maximize the interdisciplinary content and international participation of the program.
