Submissions Now Open for The Journal of American-East Asian Relations' FRANK GIBNEY AWARD
The Journal of American-East Asian Relations invites submissions for the Frank Gibney Award.
The Award is given by the editors to an essay in the field of American-East Asian Relations written by a graduate student and submitted by his or her supervisor. The author will receive a $1,000.00 prize and the selected article will be published in the Journal.
The Award honors the life and goals of Frank Gibney (1924-2006), an early and enthusiastic supporter of the Journal. Gibney worked for more than fifty years to educate the peoples on both sides of the Pacific about each other. He began his study of Japan as a military intelligence officer during World War II and during the Occupation of Japan. He became a correspondent and editor at Time, Life, and Newsweek magazines, and then joined Encyclopaedia Britannica in 1966 to develop its presence in Asia. Gibney wrote or edited more than a dozen books on Japan and Asia.
In 1979, Gibney co-founded the Pacific Basin Institute, now at Pomona College, Claremont California, to promote public understanding through lectures, conferences, and publications. The Institute's accomplishments include an award-winning PBS series, The Pacific Century. He edited the Library of Japan series, which commissioned and translated works of Japanese fiction and nonfiction. Gibney was president of the Pacific Basin Institute and Professor of Politics at Pomona College.
Deadline for submissions for the 2014 Award is April 30, 2014.
Please send submissions to Charles W. Hayford, Immediate Past Editor at: Chayford@AOL.COM
