Call for Submissions

October 12, 2002

Dear Colleague,

I am writing to call your attention to the journal of American-Chinese Society and Culture (ACSC). ACSC is a scholarly journal based in the United States which provides an international and intercultural forum for the presentation of research and discussion concerning the United States and China within a broad socio-cultural context. Through the exchange of new research, this journal aims to promote and enhance mutual recognition and understanding between academics in the two countries.

With its broad-ranging views, ACSC features intercultural perspectives and interdisciplinary dialogues. The journal welcomes submissions of research articles, insightful reviews, and informed commentaries or reports from scholars in the United States, China and elsewhere in the world. The journal gives expression to topics involving the two countries and their rich traditions in the areas of culture, philosophy, history, religion, language, literature, arts, law, politics, international relations, sociology, economics, and other themes in the humanities and social sciences.

The Journal is published twice yearly - in June and December - by the Institute of American and Chinese Culture with the auspices of the Cambridge Center for Chinese Culture in Boston, Massachusetts, and the Beijing Dongfang University in Beijing, China.

Recognizing you as an important world-known scholar in your filed, I sincerely invite your submission and support to this journal. Attached is a detailed guideline for preparing and submitting your manuscripts.

Thank you for your interest in American-Chinese Society and Culture.

Sincerely,
Wang Yongjiang
Chief Editor
