CEAS Electronic Publications on KU ScholarWorks

CEAS Electronic Publications

The Center for East Asian Studies has been publishing works by KU East Asia faculty as well as other scholars since 1962. In recent years, our publications have been digital and housed on KU ScholarWorks, an open access site managed by the KU libraries. The East Asia Library has digitized past publications and posted them on KU ScholarWorks, so now all past CEAS scholarly publications can be found in digital form using the links below. You can do a general search of our publications, or you can go straight to a list of CEAS publications arranged by subject.

CEAS Faculty Publications

KU ScholarWorks also houses open access digital versions of the works of CEAS faculty originally published elsewhere (see CEAS Faculty Works below).

Language Text Series

The Language Text Series is a series of readers originally compiled by Professor Wallace Johnson, and updated and edited by his colleagues following his death. These readers are designed to introduce students to Chinese language scholarship in the fields of art history, history, international relations, literature, sociology-anthropology, and law with an eye to helping students become familiar with the specialized Chinese language vocabulary in their fields.

Journal of Asian Legal History

The Journal of Asian Legal History was a digital journal published by Professor Wallace Johnson until his death in 2007.

KU Works for Kansas: A Free Undergraduate Study Tour of Japan

CEAS conducted a Kakehashi Project-Bridge for Tomorrow study tour to Japan for 23 students from colleges and universities throughout Kansas in summer 2014. The tour, which was funded by the Japan Foundation and led by CEAS members Maggie Childs (core faculty) and Nancy Hope (staff), visited selected sites in Tokyo and Shizuoka June 23rd - July 3rd.  For more about the Project, view the video, the itinerary, or excerpts from participant reports.

Curiosity sparks KU paleontologist Chris Beard’s quest for man’s ancient cousins When he’s not scrutinizing ancient primate fossils in his KU lab, world-renowned paleontologist Chris Beard (http://bit.ly/1w3TQSj) is out stalking human evolutionary ancestors in remote corners of Libya, Turkey, China, Myanmar, Kazakhstan, Cambodia, Egypt, Tunisia, or Kenya. Beard, who came to KU as a Foundation Distinguished Professor, has a passion for being out in the middle of nowhere and making a discovery — “There’s nothing better than that. It’s fabulous.”
