The APR has this year expanded its online publication endeavours to include reviews of current academic research, and we have just published graduate and undergraduate student reviews of the 2012 Association for Asian Studies conference, held this past March in Toronto.
Reviewers offer critical analyses of a wide array of panels and topics, in an effort to sustain dialogue relating to current research in the field. To view the reviews, please go to http://www.asiapacificreader.org/publications
