    Call for Papers | From Model Minority to Model Athlete: Perceptions of East Asians and Asian Americans in Sports. Call ends June 15, 2020

    This proposed edited volume adds much-needed literature to sports, popular culture, East Asian studies, and Asian American studies. We are looking for chapters that focus on the importance of sports in various cultural and media contexts, how East Asian and Asian American athletes have been used to define and redefine racial and gender boundaries, and how these same athletes embody “Asian-ness,” “American-ness” and/or “Other-ness” in their media representations.
