Deadline: October 31, 2021

An eminent refereed journal opens a new phase and invites contributions.

Founded in 1960 as the Journal of the Oriental Society of Australia, JOSAH is the oldest continuously published Asian Studies journal in Australia. Now renamed the Journal of the Society for Asian Humanities, JOSAH continues to offer the space for publishing textual and historical research established by the journal’s founders while welcoming articles from any discipline of the Humanities broadly conceived. We also invite submissions dealing with any region(s) of Asia.

The most recent issue of JOSAH, Vol. 52, is thematic. Guest-edited by Olivier Krischer and Meaghan Morris, “What’s in A Name? After Orientalism”brings together an exciting range of voices, including Ghassan Hage, John Frow, Tessa Morris-Suzuki, Tejaswini Niranjana, Chih-Ming Wang, Adeeb Khalid, and incoming JOSAH editor Adrian Vickers, to host a lively conversation on the role of naming in the organization of knowledge production, on the influence of the work of Edward Said in varying disciplines and locations, and on diverse directions open to Asian studies.  

While JOSAH will continue to publish thematic issues in future, we are now issuing an open call for our forthcoming general issue, Volume 53.

Please submit inquiries or papers of 5000-8000 words and Chicago style to JOSAH, including 4-7 keywords and an abstract of 200-250 words to josaheditor@sydney.edu.au.
