deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Submissions are solicited for the inaugural issue of Hong Kong Studies (https://www.chineseupress.com/index.php?route=product%2Fproduct&product_...). Hong Kong Studies is the first bilingual academic journal to focus on Hong Kong from an interdisciplinary arts and cultural studies perspective. Published by the Chinese University of Hong Kong Press, the journal will launch in 2017. The editors believe that the timely expansion of the field of Hong Kong Studies warrants a journal of its own, in order to provide a focused platform for facilitating exchange between different disciplines and viewpoints in relation to Hong Kong.

Over the past few years, a loosely defined group that has since come to be referred to as “the alt-right” began to receive increased attention and scrutiny in the American media. The group presents itself to the public as an alternative to the mainstream conservatism of the contemporary Republican Party, and is an amorphous mass of people, largely associated with Internet social media platforms. The alt-right appears to be motivated by white nationalism, antigovernment conspiracy theory, xenophobia, and an opposition to identity politics.
