CFP: Asian Histories of Computing (Special Issue of the IEEE Annals of the
History of Computing)

In recent years, historians of computing have been discussing the plural
"histories" of computing. A derivative of such approach has been the
growing importance of transnational historical investigation in this field.
This special issue on Asian History of Computing aims at not only to
broaden the literature of international case studies, but also to deepen
the view on the circulation of knowledge, importation of knowledge,
standardization in each region, role of international institutions, and so
force, through Asian perspectives on the history of computing.

The editors invite original, scholarly treatments of the history of
computing that critically examine historical case studies in Asian
computing. Submissions could take any number of approaches, including:

-       Broad historical perspectives on the development of computing in
Asian contexts

-       Historical case studies of particular technological developments

-       Accounts of governmental role in developing industry

-       Regional histories of localizations of computing technologies

-       Studies of institutions

-       Critical analyses of scholarly or popular narratives about the
Asian history of computing

These are only illustrative of possible approaches, as we would welcome
creative approaches to Asian history of computing that go beyond these
specific examples.

Abstracts should be submitted to Chigusa Kita (ckita at kansai-u.ac.jp) by 30
September 2013.

Authors of accepted abstracts will receive invitations to submit their full
papers to the Annals manuscript center by 28 February 2014.
