Reflection Essays

As the first journal dedicate to East Asia and STS, EASTS treasures visual traditions in this region and believes in an STS future that is transnational and sensation. Proudly innovative and entertaining, we have produced more than 50 covers, which are not supplementary materials but created to have their own artistic and STS lives by inviting reflections from viewers like you. The essays presented here are curated from works either originally go with the covers or commissioned to demonstrate how colorful STS can bring us to through these images. Please read and enjoy them, letting them your guide to the alternative world of East Asian STS.
