A joint enterprise of the Research Institute of Korean Studies at Korea University (RIKS) and the Institute of East Asian Studies at the University of California at Berkeley (IEAS), Cross-Currents offers its readers up-to-date research findings, emerging trends, and cutting-edge perspectives concerning East Asian history and culture from scholars in both English-speaking and Asian language-speaking academic communities. This English-language journal includes scholarship on material from the sixteenth century to the present day that has significant implications for current models of understanding East Asian history and culture. Embedded in a web-based platform with functions for collaboration, discussion, and an innovative editing and publishing process, the journal uses new technologies to facilitate a dialogue among East Asia scholars around the world that is enhanced by audio-visual and multilingual capabilities. The semiannual print issues of "Cross-Currents" (University of Hawaii Press) feature content selected from the peer-reviewed, quarterly online journal for its scholarly excellence and relevance to the journal's mission. An editorial board consisting of established scholars in Asia and North America provides oversight of the journal.
