We are delighted to announce the development of the new Intellect Journal of East Asian Popular Culture and to issue a general call for papers.

In the last few decades there has been a huge rise in the interest in East Asian Popular Culture. The Journal of East Asian Popular Culture will be engaging directly with that trend. From film to music; art to translation and fashion to tourism, this journal will offer a forum where multidisciplinary work can come together in new and exciting ways.

The East Asian Journal of Popular Culture is the first academic peer-reviewed journal for scholars, teachers, and students from around the world who have an active and passionate interest in the Popular Culture of East Asia. The journal is devoted to all aspects of Popular Culture in East Asia. With the growth in popularity of Asian visual products in the Western world and the increasing strength of the Asian markets, this publication fulfils the need for an international journal that allows Western and Asian film, media, literary, music, fashion, digital media, television, art and cultural scholars alike to engage in discussion. The journal encourages articles that are both localised (towards a specific popular culture trend, figure or industry) as well as articles that are more global in their outlook (forging links between East Asian popular culture and wider global issues). We welcome papers on any of these and related topics.

If you would like to submit a paper or contact us about a proposed special edition please email: eajpopculture@gmail.com or one of the editors for further advice.

This journal will also be offering in English reviews of Asian Language publications devoted to popular culture. This will bring Asian based material via detailed summaries and reviews to an English Language readership. If you are interested in acting as a reviewer or are interested in proposing a book to be reviewed please contact the reviews editor.
