Asian American Research Journal

[CALL FOR PAPERS SUBMISSION DEADLINE ON FEBRUARY 6, 2022]
 

The Asian American Research Journal (AARJ), co-sponsored by the Asian American Research Center (AARC) and the Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies (AAADS) Program at UC Berkeley, is a platform for research and scholarly work that centers Asian American experiences, identities, and communities. The AARJ is published annually with the intent to uplift and empower students working to expand dialogue surrounding Asian American experiences.

VOLUME II: ILLUMINATING LIVED REALITIES

For our second publication, we set out to create a platform for students to submit works that address the ways in which Asian American communities have been affected by the global pandemic. As the world moves forward in unpredictable trajectories and rattles communities, the AARJ supplies an outlet to recognize and validate the lived experiences of Asian Americans, stepping away from the presupposed assumptions and narratives that have been painted upon them. We aim to collect submissions that reflect the need for debunking sociocultural stereotypes, reclaiming histories, and attending to our communities, breaking out of the margins in which we have been historically situated. 

SUBMISSION TOPICS COULD INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO:

Agriculture, city planning, diaspora studies, demography, economics, education, environmental justice, family, food studies, ethnicity and race, gender and sexuality, genetic ancestry, history and politics, identity, intersectionality, law, linguistics, literary/visual representations, media and pop culture, public health, psychology, religion, science and technology, social justice, sociology.
