Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2006
University of California Press, a leading university publisher in the humanities and social sciences, proudly announces the launch of a new biannual journal, Journal of Vietnamese Studies. Published for The Center for Southeast Asia Studies at UC Berkeley, Journal of Vietnamese Studies will concentrate on featuring high-quality, peer-reviewed scholarship on Vietnam. As the only peer-reviewed English-language journal focusing on Vietnam, Journal of Vietnamese Studies is set to play a crucial role in the thriving discipline of Vietnam studies.
"Journal of Vietnamese Studies is devoted to publishing a wide range of scholarship on Vietnamese history, culture, politics and society, to supporting research that is both innovative and meticulous and to encouraging work that reassesses what passes for conventional wisdom within the field", says Peter Zinoman co-Editor in Chief of Journal of Vietnamese Studies. Mariam B. Lam, co-Editor in Chief for JVS adds, "I am looking forward to seeing innovative interdisciplinary directions for scholarship by new generations of Vietnamologists alongside rigorous and provocative disciplinary and archival work."
"The burgeoning growth of Vietnamese studies over the last two decades provides ample evidence of the need for a regular forum in which to share ideas and research about Vietnam" says Rebecca Simon, Associate Director for Journals and Digital Publishing, UC Press. "We believe that Journal of Vietnamese Studies provides a much needed venue for deliberation, conversation and debate about a dynamic region that will make a lasting contribution to the field of Asian studies."
University of California Press and The Center for Southeast Asia Studies wish to thank the Henry Luce Foundation for their generous assistance in supporting the launch and publication of Journal of Vietnamese Studies.
