IJAPS is pleased to make two important announcements:
First, our website has been updated with a new banner and logo design that better reflects who we are and what our journal is about.
Second, today we officially launch a new section titled Perspectives, which aims to capture significant views and voices about Asia Pacific in the here and now.
Published twice a year, and focused on specific themes, Perspectives features experts from academia and other fields, including the arts, performance and the media, who share their perspectives on topical issues that are relevant to their work and Asia Pacific.
Brought to you in this inaugural publication are three eminent scholars: (1) Shirley Geok-lin Lim, an award-winning poet and author, and Professor Emerita of English Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara; (2) Louise Edwards, the Scientia Professor of Chinese History at the University of New South Wales, Sydney; and (3) Ooi Keat Gin, formerly Professor of History from USM, the founding editor of IJAPS, and presently the Honorary Advisor of IJAPS.
