The PWFC Works in Progress Series makes PWFC research available in advance of publication, to share preliminary findings with the larger research community and to encourage discussion among and feedback from members of the partnership. The series includes academic writing and artistic work developed as part of our Artists and Scholars in Residence Program, which is supported at the University of Victoria by the Centre for Asia Pacific Initiatives and the Centre for Global Studies.
Works in Progress are pre-publication versions of creative non-fiction, poetry, visual arts, and academic papers. They’re still unfinished, but sufficiently developed to be shared. Some Works in Progress may already be under submission or in press and forthcoming elsewhere. Many are expected to eventually be chapters in PWFC books.
Generally, each Work in Progress will remain on our website for 6 months before being reserved for subsequent publication.
