>international relations theory as well as cultural studies, indeed in
>any of the humanities and social science disciplines, will be welcome.

>("Europe" and "Asia"), and may address any of the relations of proximity
>and separation alluded to by the metaphors of "border" and "bridge."

>Myung Koo (Seoul National University) and Tong Shijun (Shanghai Academy
>of Social Sciences).
