One of the Asia Pacific Reader's goals is to tap into the knowledge of students and faculty by promoting and publishing their work. The publications section at the APR has a number of ongoing projects devoted to this goal, outlined below.
Graduate and undergraduate reviews of the Association for Asian Studies annual conference, held in Toronto in March 2012.
It is with great pride that we present and announce the 3rd annual publication of Passages. This year's publication features work from students who participated in exchanges to Indonesia, China, and Taiwan, as well as work from graduate students across the country. We are most honoured by Professor Charles Burton's enlightening piece on China and its future participation in the international community. We thank everyone for making this year's publication a reality and encourage all of you to submit your work for one of our future publications.

Passages 2009 - 2010
We are very proud to announce the publication of Passages 2009-2010. Building on the inaugural volume, this year's draws from a much wider range of student research - U of T Summer Abroad program in Shanghai; ASI400 class trip to South Korea; and, as always, research notes on East and Southeast Asia by Dr.David Chu Scholarship recipients. What is more, we are absolutely delighted to have received submissions from graduate students from Columbia University, Fudan University and Harvard University. This marks an important step of the Passages - and the APR - expanding its international reach. Above all, we are indeed privileged to publish an op-ed from Mr. Gordon Chang, forbes.com columnist and author of "The Coming Collapse of China".

Passages 2008 - 2009
We are proud to announce the inaugural publication of Passages, an annual online journal highlighting the range of research that University of Toronto students have been conducting through fieldwork in Asia. Winners of the Dr. David Chu Scholarship in Asia Pacific studies were asked to reflect on their experiences abroad, and they have provided engaging stories and insights to share.

Call for Submissions
The APR is accepting submissions from University of Toronto students, faculty and alumni for op-eds, photo essays, and reviews (of plays, films, or events relating to the Asia Pacific) on an ongoing basis. If you have an idea for a submission, please email jam...@asiapacificreader.org with a short proposal.
We have a number of ongoing blogs in which students document their experiences and reflections studying and travelling to the Asia Pacific, listed below. We are always looking for proposals from students and faculty for new blogs. We are especially excited to hear from faculty members - this is a chance to voice your opinions to a wider (and different) audience than the usual conferences and journal articles, gaining automatic access to our readership.
