Critical, Cultural and Communications Press (London) announces the publication in early 2023 of a major volume focusing on post-conflict cultures in Asia.

The Studies in Post-Conflict Cultures series, which was inaugurated in 2006, has to this date published ten anthologies and three monographs exploring the cultural consequences of conflict across the globe. This is an ongoing series, originating in an Anglo-Italian Leverhulme-funded project, examining the specifically cultural aftermath of periods of national or international conflict, understood as war, civil war, dictatorship, terrorism, revolution, colonialism or persecution. No chronological or disciplinary boundaries are applied. Studies may be historical or contemporary, and may fall within any subject field. The ten volumes so far published have brought together international experts from disciplines as diverse as Political Science, History, Law, Media Studies, Cultural Studies, Critical Theory, Semiotics, Geography, Film Studies, Anthropology and Literature Studies.

CCC Press intends to publish a major volume of papers on post-conflict cultures in Asia in the first half of 2023. If you would like to propose an essay to be commissioned for inclusion in this volume, please send an initial proposal of no more than two pages in length to the volume editors, Dr Macdonald Daly and
Dr Constance Goh, at Already completed work, as long as it is unpublished, will also be equally considered. Initial proposals should be received no later than 31 December 2021.

Final papers should be no less than 4,000 words in length and no more than 8,000 words. They must focus on any aspect of post-conflict cultures in Asia, or significantly concerning Asia. All final submissions should be original, previously unpublished work and will be subjected to our usual refereeing process. Papers must be written in English and conform to the agreed style guidelines, which will be issued upon request. The deadline for final submissions is 1 July 2022.
