Call for Papers
Anthology: Gendering the Trans-Pacific World
Editors: Catherine Ceniza Choy (University of California, Berkeley) and Judy Tzu-Chun Wu (Ohio State University)
Choy and Wu, editors of a new book series with Brill, are inviting submissions for an inaugural anthology on the topic of “Gendering the Trans-Pacific World.” The new book series and proposed anthology seek to make two important intellectual interventions.
First, taking our cue from “Atlantic World” scholarship, we call for a “Pacific World” framework to understand the connections between the lands, people, cultures, and environments that are in and border the Pacific Ocean.
