Call for Manuscripts: Southeast Asia in the Humanities and Social Sciences Curricula

We are developing a special section that will be published in spring 2015 entitled “Southeast Asia in the Humanities and Social Sciences Curricula.” We hope to publish a special section that includes articles and essays representative of a wide range of academic disciplines. Manuscripts selected for publication should be written in prose that is accessible for high school and/or undergraduate instructors and students. The number of endnotes in manuscripts should be minimal compared to more traditional scholarly journals.

Prospective authors should be aware that there is almost an even division between the percentage of our readers who are undergraduate instructors and the percentage of our readers who are secondary school teachers. We are especially appreciative of manuscripts that are potentially useful at both the undergraduate and secondary school levels. Please consult the EAA guidelines, available on the website under my signature, before submitting a manuscript for this special section. Pay particular attention to feature and teaching resources manuscript word-count ranges. Prospective authors are also encouraged to send possible manuscript ideas or any questions to me via email at

The deadline for initial submission of manuscripts is November 20th 2014. However, our manuscript word count ceilings are modest and we purposefully limit the number of endnotes for manuscripts since the journal is intended for educated lay people. I am particularly interested in obtaining both feature-length manuscripts and teaching resources essays on Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia but will promptly respond to authors who might be interested in submitting manuscripts on other Southeast Asian topics. We hope that the special section will be multi-disciplinary.
