To all JSAS members, our supporters, and all those interested in the multi-disciplinary research in African studies in Japan/Asia, as well as Japanese/Asian studies in Africa.
We are pleased to inform you that we are launching a quarterly multi-lingual JSAS Newsletter beginning in the summer of 2019. It will be published every three months online, and on our official JSAS homepage. Although JSAS is mainly an English-medium platform, we recognise the need to accommodate other language users who may be interested in sharing with us on topics and content befitting a newsletter covering Afrasian studies. The content will include medium-range articles on issues affecting the Asian and African continents, as well as notices and announcements of interest to JSAS members and supporters. The former may include commentaries on recent news headlines and happenings in both Africa and Asia, and the latter may include such items as announcements of books and articles recently published as well as short reports on coming and/or just concluded conferences. We shall strive to create periodical themes as well as maintaining a consistent quarterly schedule.
We are eagerly looking forward to your contributions, and please send them all as Word file attachments to Vick Ssali (JSAS President and Editor-in-Chief):
