This Special Issue of Genealogy entitled “Tracking Asian Diasporic Experiences” calls for essays about historical and contemporary diasporic experiences of Asians around the globe. Since the dawn of human existence on the Asian continent, Asians have left their homelands and migrated to different parts of the world. Much has been written about the diasporic experiences of some Asian ancestry groups (e.g., Chinese, Indians, Japanese, Koreans, Filipinos, Vietnamese) in certain destinations such as Southeast Asia, the United States, Canada, and Australia, but much more needs to be researched about Asian diasporic experiences in other destinations (e.g., Africa, Europe, Latin America) and understudied Asian ancestry groups (e.g., Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Nepalese, Sri Lankans, Thais, Indonesians, Burmese), especially from genealogical and transnationalism perspectives. The goal of this Special Issue is to expand and deepen our understanding of Asian diasporic experiences from genealogical and transnationalism perspectives. The focus of this Special Issue is on the causes and processes of Asian diasporas and their impact on family relations, family history, and family lineage across the globe. The editorial team hopes to attract contributions from any discipline of the social sciences, humanities, and applied sciences (e.g., law, education, business, family studies, health studies) with different theoretical perspectives and methodological orientations that can shed new light on the themes. We welcome all relevant submissions but are particularly interested in articles that address the following issues:
- The origins of Asian diasporas;
- Experiences of Asian diasporas in Africa;
- Experiences of Asian diasporas in Latin America;
- Experiences of Asian diasporas in Europe;
- New perspectives on Asian diasporas in other Asian countries;
- New perspectives on Asian diasporas in the United States;
- New perspectives on Asian diasporas in Canada;
- New perspectives on Asian diasporas in Oceania;
- Global diasporic experiences of understudied Asian groups including, but not limited to, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Nepalese, Sri Lankans, Thais, Indonesians, Burmese, Laotians, and Cambodians;
- The impact of Asian diasporas on the narratives of Asian family histories;
- The effect of Asian diasporas on Asian family lineage;
- The effect of Asian diasporas on Asian family relations;
- Asian diasporas and familial naming practices;
- Effects of migration policies on Asian diasporas;
- New horizons in Asian diaspora research.
