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.

2014 Columbia East Asia Review Forum

The 2014 CEAR Forum will take place on Saturday, May 3, from 1-4:00 pm. This year's theme is "Re-interpreting the Past." We will have undergraduate students present their research--covering either the political or cultural ramifications of historical manipulation. We will also have graduate students and faculty members provide commentary on the undergraduate presentations. Following each undergraduate's presentation, there will be a discussion about the presented material and concluding thesis--facilitated by questions. There will also be a chance for the audience to ask questions about the undergraduate's presentation or subsequent discussion. Please RSVP for the event by contacting info@eastasiareview.org with your name. Columbia and Barnard students will have priority, so please email with your university email address.

2015 Call for Papers

CEAR's editorial board has completed its submission process for the Spring 2014 edition from students at universities worldwide.
