Asian Center to Launch New Book on East Asian Popular Culture

The Asian Center will be launching a new book, East Asian Popular Culture: Philippine Perspectives, on Saturday, 7 September 2013 at the Japan Hall, Hall of Wisdom, GT-Toyota Asian Cultural Center, Asian Center, University of the Philippines Diliman.

Edited by Dr. Michiyo Yoneno-Reyes, Associate Professor at the Asian Center, the book compiles nine articles on Japanese, Korean and Chinese pop culture, offering interdisciplinary analyses of manga, films, TV dramas, and music and examining how these cultural forms are consumed and experienced in a Philippine context.

“This book is a major academic publication of its kind in the Philippines,” says Dr. Yoneno-Reyes. ” It provides a unique contribution to the lively debate about East Asian culture, especially in light of its diffusion to the rest of Asia, if not the world.

East Asian Popular Culture: Philippine Perspectives covers a variety of topics, including:

  • Effeminated masculinity in a J-pop concert
  • Gender (girlhood, womanhood, male homosexuality, etc.) in manga and films
  • South Korean telenovelas and fandom
  • Filipino cosplayers
  • Filipino fandom of Asian celebrities

“By looking at how Filipinos consume East Asian popular culture,” says Dr. Yoneno-Reyes, “the book also offers comparative and cross-cultural studies of and in interpretation, adaptation and hybridization. It has been interesting to see how new, even unintended meanings and interpretations of cultural forms can be generated outside the ‘original’ parameters of East Asian culture.”

Funded by the Japan Foundation, East Asian Popular Culture: Philippine Perspectives is published by the Asian Center, University of the Philippines Diliman. The book is available at a special launch price of PhP 220 until 7 September 2013.

For orders, reservations, and inquiries, please email the Publications Office of the Asian Center at upasianstudies@gmail.com or call 63.2.981.8500 local 3586.

Humanities Diliman is now indexed in Scopus

by Narita EC de las Alas

Humanities Diliman joins the prestigious list of journals indexed in Scopus. The indexing starts with the June 2012 issue of the journal.

Scopus is an abstract and citation database maintained by Elsevier. The database contains almost 20,500 titles from more than 5,000 international publishers. Titles nominated for inclusion in Scopus are reviewed by an independent Content Selection and Advisory Board (CSAB) composed of subject experts from all over the world. The rigorous review process employs both qualitative and quantitative criteria that are grouped into five main categories: journal policy, content, journal standing, regularity, and online availability.

Humanities Diliman is the first UP Diliman journal to be indexed in Scopus. It is a journal on arts and humanities in the Philippines published biannually by the University of the Philippines Diliman through its Office of the Vice-Chancellor for Research and Development (OVCRD). In their review of Humanities Diliman, the Scopus CSAB noted that: “The editorial policy, abstracts, homepage and many articles impress in this journal.”

Scholars in Philippine humanities are invited to submit papers for possible publication in Humanities Diliman. To access the submission guidelines, as well as the journal’s contents, please visit this link: http://www.journals.upd.edu.ph/index.php/humanitiesdiliman
