How to publish in this journal


Asiatic is the very first international journal on English writings by Asian writers and writers of Asian origin, currently being the only one of its kind. It aims to publish high-quality researches and outstanding creative works combining the broad fields of literature and linguistics on the same intellectual platform. Asiatic will contain a rich collection of selected articles on issues that deal with Asian Englishes, Asian cultures and Asian literatures in English, including diasporic literature and Asian literatures in translation. Articles may include studies that address the multidimensional impacts of the English Language on a wide variety of Asian cultures (South Asian, East Asian, Southeast Asian and others). Subjects of debates and discussions will encompass the socio-economic facet of the Asian world in relation to current academic investigations on literature, culture and linguistics. This approach will present the works of English-trained Asian writers and scholars, having English as the unifying device and Asia as a fundamental backdrop of their study. The three different segments that will be featured in each issue of Asiatic are: (i) critical writings on literary, cultural and linguistics studies, (ii) creative writings that include works of prose fiction and selections of poetry and (iv) review articles on Asian books, novels and plays produced in English (or translated into English). These works will reflect how elements of western and Asian are both subtly and intensely intertwined as a result of acculturation, globalisation and such. Join the conversation about this journal
