The University of San Francisco Center for Asia Pacific Studies is pleased
to announce a call for papers, book reviews, and photo essays for a special
issue on *transnational health in East Asia* to be published in its
peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal, *Asia Pacific Perspectives*.

With this series, we plan to examine the inventive ways that scholars in
the social sciences and humanities are exploring issues related to
transnational health in East Asia, both historically and today. We are
interested in submissions related to both policy and the transnational
movements of medicines, treatment methods, and other ways of dealing with
disease and disaster. Scholars working on topics related to medical
diplomacy/public health diplomacy ranging from emergency relief (both
nutritional and medical) after natural disasters and outbreaks of disease
are encouraged to apply. Other proposed themes include mask diplomacy and,
more recently, vaccine diplomacy, government surveillance during pandemics,
health monitoring, and border restrictions during outbreaks of disease,
among others.

We are looking for *one additional peer-reviewed article* (8,000-12,000

We invite *book reviews* (700-1200 words) on any work on these topics that
has come out in the last two years. Suggestions include:

   - Jiyong Jin. International Regimes in Global Health Governance.
   Routledge, 2021.
   - Soon, Wayne. Global Medicine in China: A Diasporic History. Stanford
   University Press, 2020.
   - Céline Coderey, and Laurent Pordié. Circulation and Governance of
   Asian Medicine. Routledge, 2019.

We also welcome *photo essay *submissions (1250-2000 words) at this time.
We are particularly interested in portrayals of public hygiene, mask
wearing, border-crossing, and quarantine. Submissions will include a
non-peer reviewed essay contextualizing the photographs in the text and:

   - 10-15 high quality photos each with descriptive captions and complete
   credit/source information (as a single PDF)
   - a one-page description of the theme of the essay and the
   timeliness/importance of the images to scholars of Asia
   - a brief bio paragraph about the curator (approx 100 words) and
   complete contact information
   - [Note: obtaining copyright permissions for all images is the
   responsibility of the author]
