The Copenhagen Journal of Asian Studies
Join us for the re-launch of the Copenhagen Journal of Asian Studies.
The Copenhagen Journal of Asian Studies (CJAS) has returned to the University of Copenhagen, where it first started more than 30 years ago. In 2003, the CJAS moved to the Asia Research Centre at Copenhagen Business School (CBS), together with its founding editor and professor of China Studies, Kjeld Erik Brødsgaard.
A number of circumstances have paved the way for the return of the CJAS to the University of Copenhagen, and – as of now – the journal is based at the Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies. The scope of the new CJAS is broad and interdisciplinary, focusing on culture and society in contemporary Asia as well as Asia in modern history, promoting an interface between humanities and social sciences in the study of Asia.
The CJAS provides a platform for the global intellectual community to discuss and analyse modern Asia in comparative cross-cultural perspectives, where Asian connections occupy a key but not an exclusive role.
The geographical scope of ‘Asia’ covers overlapping cultural-economic regions of East Asia, Inner Asia and Central Asia, South Asia, and South-East Asia, and includes Asian cultural spheres globally.
On 10 March, we will celebrate the re-launch of the CJAS with an event featuring presentations by researchers from UCPH, CBS and beyond.
