*Call for Papers*

The Journal of Contemporary Eastern Asia (JCEA), a refereed open-access journal on East and Southeast Asia, is announcing a call for papers for a special Winter 2020 Issue:
*Friends and Foes of Multicultural East Asia. *

Three decades have passed since East Asia emerged as a new destination for migrants. While industrialized economies in this region have mostly accepted temporary guestworkers and coethnic migrants, the rapid emergence of multiethnic societies has brought about new research into multicultural East Asia. In the last decade, emerging scholarship on xenophobic discourses and practices has also documented the rise of a backlash against multiculturalism, primarily from the right- wing but also from liberal-oriented actors. Most such studies exclusively address either one or the other dimension of this inter-related development. Against this background, the purpose of this special issue is to provide a forum for cross-national conversation on the historical process and political contexts that shape the complex landscape of multiculturalism and xenophobia in East Asia.

The topics that we are particularly interested in include, but are not limited to:

・ Multicultural policies, practices and their critics
・ Racism, xenophobia and anti-immigrant sentiments
・ Pro-migrant and anti-immigrant movements
・ Legacies of colonialism and the Cold War on migration in East Asia
・ Cultures and social mobility of migrants
・ The rise of multicultural families and its implications
・ Multiculturalism in education

The deadline for abstract submission is *March 31.*
For more details, please refer to our website
