RASR’s edge

Rice Asian Studies hosted a launch party for the third annual volume of its journal, the Rice Asian Studies Review, on April 22
Over lunch at the Chao Center for Asian Studies on April 22, the Rice Asian Studies Organization celebrated the release of its annual scholarly journal, the Rice Asian Studies Review (RASR).

Over 20 students submitted papers for RASR’s third volume, but only five articles were chosen for publication after a rigorous peer-review process. Its editors also chose articles that presented a diverse range of topics and perspectives.

In this year’s volume, students explored everything from HIV research on the transgender “kathoey” population in Thailand to the effects of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s “work-style reform” on the country’s labor challenges. (Photo by Amber Szymczyk)
