Call for Graduate Co-Authors and Advisers

Opportunity Detail

A research experience is available to both undergraduate and graduate students through a collaboration between Synergy: The Journal of Contemporary Asia Studies and Re:Locations: Journal of the Asia Pacific World. Hosted by the Asian Institute at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, these undergraduate and graduate journals are offering students the opportunity to produce a research project for publication. Students will learn how to work collaboratively, gain a better understanding of research processes, and successfully complete the publication of their project to a high standard in a special edition of these academic journals. We are currently taking proposals for graduate co-authors and research mentors. During the school year, each team develops a small research project that addresses Contemporary Asia or the Asia-Pacific World. We are looking to stimulate creative and analytical thinking and collaboration. The program is run from October 2018 to May 2019, with the opportunity to extend research into Fall 2019. Listed below are the topics for research and publication (art, international relations, economics and translations). We encourage graduate students with a broad range of interests related to the contemporary Asia and Asia-Pacific to apply as graduate advisers. If you are interested in filling one of the graduate student positions, please apply for our program using this form: Research Topics: • Japan-Korea Relations through an International Relations lens • China's connectivity projects in Southeast Asia - a project that pays attention to "development" - the theme that runs through the whole BRI initiative and takes a transnational perspective. • Examination of the impact of British colonialism and the legacy it left behind on women across the South Asian diaspora - emphasis on the use of photography and media in portraying women. • Materialization of history and the politics of memories in the case of New Order period in Indonesia • China’s new ‘Silk Road’ initiative (economic geopolitical relationship between China and Sri Lanka) • The impact of China's man-made islands on the country's economy • Article on the impact of photo journalism and documentary photography/the creation of a photo journal project. • The translation of important scholarly work into English
