ASIEN Special Issue: Vienna’s Young East-Asianists


In a special issue ASIEN – The German Journal on Contemporary Asia currently highlights the diversity and interdisciplinarity of the current generation of junior scientists at our Department of East Asian Studies.

The contributions in this volume, edited by Martin Mandl and Florian Purkarthofer, take us on a tour of East Asia’s past, presence, and by means of a computer game even fast forward to the year 11945. The articles and research notes are published in English, underlining the internationality of Vienna’s East Asian studies and their audiences.

ASIEN Vol. 158/159 (2021) will soon be available in print at the East Asian Studies Library, online for members through the DGA’s website [link], and also online free of charge after a six month embargo period through the website and XAsia [link].
