Colorado Journal of Asian Studies

Each year, the Center for Asian Studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder highlights one or two themes in its sponsored programs. In 2012‐2013, the theme was “Listening to Asia.” It is appropriate that in this second issue of Colorado Journal of Asian Studies, the leadoff article by Christopher Wicoff challenges our understanding of how a “fake” pop star can be a singing sensation. We are also pleased to see for the first time projects by students in the Leeds School of Business (Tori DaHarb and Rachel Young). The latter project is the first marketing plan to be included in CJAS. Whether it is about baseball traditions in Japan (Jonathan Campbell) or the political disputes over the Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands (Elizabeth Chavez), whether it is about village level elections in China (Dashiell Nathanson) or the Chinese One Child Policy (Emma Rafaelof), these theses highlight the importance and uniqueness of Asia.
