Welcome to East Asian History in its new electronic form. East Asian History is an international refereed journal publishing scholarly research on all aspects of historical studies in East Asia. This new online format enables authors to include sound and film files and photomedia within their articles, enlarging the journal’s scope into fields of historical documentation, such as cinema or music history, previously limited by print publishing.
East Asian History was published in print from 1991 to 2008 (issues 1-36), and was edited by Geremie R. Barmé (to 2007), and Benjamin Penny (from 2007). The journal’s predecessor, Papers on Far Eastern History, was published by The Australian National University’s Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies from 1970 to 1990. When Papers on Far Eastern History became East Asian History the new journal employed an original and striking format that the new online version of the journal has adapted and developed in the new medium.
East Asian History is published twice a year, and includes articles on subjects of historical significance in the East Asian area, as well as on issues of contemporary concern or neglected aspects and sub-regions of Asia. Articles on art and architecture, technology and the environment, and the history of ideas, emotions and subjective experience are also welcomed.
