LPP Collection Editor and Author Dr Dong Wang and LPP Founder David Parker will be participating in a roundtable discussion on the changing landscape of teaching and publishing in Asia and Asian studies.
AAS Attendees: Please join us for this special session at the Association for Asian Studies (AAS) Conference in Boston, MA.
This roundtable explores the challenges and opportunities surrounding teaching and publishing in Asia and Asian studies in the age of diversity with often fundamentally conflicting views competing for primacy.
To discuss – and attempt to answer – some of these questions, this roundtable draws on first-hand experiences at independent publishing enterprises, major research universities, liberal arts colleges where Asia is taught and published about by all the discussants in places ranging from Australia, Britain, Finland, Germany and Indonesia to the United States and mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
Organizers: Carla P. Freeman (U.S. Peace Institute), John Fitzgerald (former Ford Foundation representative in PRC)
Chair: Kristin Stapleton (professor, SUNY Buffalo)
Lived Places Publishing (LPP) is building a catalog of applied and concise course reading material in interdisciplinary collections. Each title we publish explores the intersection of identity and place, humanizing an issue through lived experience(s).
We just launched our first collection of 40 titles for the 2023 collection. It is delivered with libraries in mind:
As we develop our publishing program, we look forward to feedback and guidance from the library community. To this end, we are offering open-ended trials throughout 2023. We have 5 institutions on board who have begun in January 2023, and we invite you to take part.
Each LPP book includes learning objectives, recommended assignments and discussion guides, and is written at a length (100-150 pages) to be completed in 2-3 weeks of a course. Lived Places Publishing books are written to bring theory and concept to life and to illustrate the theories and concepts that underpin the curriculum in each discipline we publish to.
We are currently offering unlimited, unrestricted, university-wide free trials to allow collection librarians to make an informed decision before committing to purchase.

Dr Wang is seeking empirically-driven manuscripts of 30,000-60,000 words that bear individual and/or collective voices with compelling lived stories involving Asia, the Asian diaspora, and/or others living in Asian places.
