ABOUT PACIFIC ASIA INQUIRY

Pacific Asia Inquiry is a peer reviewed on-line journal dedicated to showcasing works on the Pacific Asia Region and to advancing knowledge and understanding of this region. The Pacific Asia has long been the focus of intense cultural, political and economic interaction with other world regions, and it is the central theme of this journal.

Pacific Asia Inquiry analyzes and publishes contributions from a wide scope of works - national and international, regional and global, historical and current. Contributions are drawn from  multiple  disciplines  in  the  liberal  arts  and  social  sciences  -  including  sociology, psychology, communication, language and literature, visual arts, music, drama, history, geography, anthropology, philosophy, political science and economics. This journal appeals to academics, policy makers, and both government and non-government professionals with an interest in the Pacific Asia Region. Special edition themes under consideration include Economic Development and Social Change, Militarization in Pacific Asia, Culture Change and Global Interactions, After Orientalism, and Trends in the Visual Arts.

The Editorial Board of Pacific Asia Inquiry welcomes theoretical and field oriented contributions and analyses. Articles, critical essays, and case studies applied or theoretical that span the liberal arts and social sciences are welcome. The research emphasis of this series accommodates in-depth studies. Contributors are invited to share their innovative research, challenging past and current positions and perspectives. Any interdisciplinary approach may be employed  so  long  as  it  is  documented  in  a  readable  style  of  writing  that  is  accessible  to specialists and non-specialists alike. Authors may submit their writings on problems and issues associated with any ethnic group, national culture, historical period, genre, or media so long as the article has some scholarly and/or intellectual relevance or relation to Pacific Asia, especially Micronesia.
