Issue Description

It is an honor to present our second issue of the Columbia Journal of Asia (CJA). Volume I, Issue 2 features fourteen creative and scholarly pieces by undergraduates and recent graduates from across the United States and Europe, presented in three sections: creative works, which include art, poetry, and prose; notes, which are brief academic essays; and articles, which are long-form research papers. These works, which span history, political science, literature, and the arts, illuminate narratives of revolution and resistance across borders—from student activism in colonial Burma, to the defiance of Chinese settler colonialism in Tibet, to comparative ideas of Socialist revolution across Asia. We believe that this is a crucial academic and artistic intervention, one that allows us to move beyond colonial-era portrayals of Asia that deny Asian subjects political agency, and to envision solidarities between Asian communities (and communities outside of Asia) across language, religion, and national borders.
