30th Issue of E-journal Cross-Currents Now Online

March 1, 2019

The 30th quarterly issue of our open-access e‑journal Cross-Currents: East Asian History and Culture Review(link is external) is now online.

This special issue on “Air-Water-Land-Human: Environment and Health in Modern East Asia,” guest edited by Ruth Rogaski (Vanderbilt), brings together five research articles and a related photo essay by Gerald Figal (Vanderbilt). The articles by William Johnston (Wesleyan), Mary Augusta Brazelton (Cambridge), Ruth Rogaski, Janelle Lamoreaux (Arizona), and Bo Wang (Lausanne) highlight areas where East Asian cases can make crucial contributions as specific as the historical epidemiology of a single disease or as sweeping as the theorizing of new forms of environmental activism. This issue also includes review essays by David R. Ambaras (North Carolina State), Kwangmin Kim (U Colorado, Boulder), Nadia Y. Kim (Loyola Marymount), and Anne Walthall (UC Irvine).
