An Interdisciplinary Journal of Asian Interactions
Editors-in-Chief: and
Call for Papers: In our forthcoming issue of Vol. 23.2, we plan a special issue on 'natural history.' Please see details for submission in this Call for Papers.

Crossroads is designed as an international forum for contributions related to the analysis of exchange relations, connections and interactions across the Asian world. The “Asian World” in this context connotes not only the (Eur-)Asian continent and countries in adjacent maritime spaces, such as the Indian Ocean or the Asia-Pacific, but regions elsewhere that are connected to Asia through trade, politics, science and knowledge transfer, diffusion of ideas, culture, migration, etc. These connections can be continental (overland) or maritime (overseas), bilateral or multilateral, as well as empirical or imaginary. The journal welcomes contributions that offer new insights into the history of Asian connections and interactions, employing disciplinary or interdisciplinary frameworks, analysing archaeological, textual, oral, visual, or other sources, and can range from historical studies to contemporary topics.

The journal was formerly entitled Crossroads — Studies on the History of Exchange Relations in the East Asian World, edited by Angela Schottenhammer, sponsored by the German Research Council (DFG, Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) and published by Ostasien Verlag, Gossenberg, between 2010 and 2018. The journal archive by 2018 is freely downloadable here.

Founded in 2001 originally by a consortium of European universities, the European Journal of East Asian Studies (EJEAS) is a global scholarly journal specializing in post-1945 East Asian studies, with a focus on East Asia’s socio-economic development, regional affairs and external relations. The journal’s central objective is to promote interdisciplinary contributions in social sciences for a better conceptual and empirical analysis of East Asia’s recent and current evolution, at infra- and supra-national levels, including the knowledge of local dimensions. Contributors are invited to cross-combine disciplines such as anthropology, geography, history, economics, political science, psychology, and sociology. They can be also inspired by domains of study such as cultural studies, international development, foreign affairs, global studies, public policy, corporate affairs and management, etc.

An additional objective is to encourage and welcome, from the region and outside, original articles suggesting new approaches, research methods and contents in area studies, as applied to 21st century East Asia, and also as a possible redefinition or revisiting of classical Asian and regional studies.

Articles can address the wider East Asian region, or sub-regions such as ASEAN/Southeast Asia, and individual countries or groups of countries. Oceania and the South Pacific are not covered in this journal.
