We Are CEAR


Welcome to the online home of the Columbia East Asia Review!

CEAR is a multidisciplinary academic journal of East and Southeast Asian Studies based at Columbia University in the City of New York. CEAR's editorial team (which consists of both undergraduates and graduates) publishes new undergraduate research on East and Southeast Asia annually in both print and online editions. We are dedicated to promoting research and fostering idea exchange in the fields of East and Southeast Asian Studies as well as to providing undergraduates with first-hand experience in the peer-review and publishing process.
