New Journal: South Asian History and Culture

Deadline: ongoing


Details: This journal offers a forum that will provide an integrated perspective on the field at large. It aims to bring together research on South Asia in the humanities and social sciences, and to provide scholars with a platform covering, but not restricted to, their particular fields of interest and specialization. Such an approach is critical to any expanding field of study, for the development of more informed and broader perspectives, and of more overarching theoretical conceptions.

The idea is to try to achieve a truly multidisciplinary journal of South Asia under the aegis of which the established disciplines (e.g. history, politics, gender studies) and more recent fields (e.g. Indian sport studies, sexuality studies) will enmesh with each other.

A focus will also be to make available to a broader readership new research on film, media, photography, medicine and the environment, which have to date remained more specialized fields of South Asian studies.

A significant concern for this journal is to focus across the region known as South Asia, and not simply on India, as most "South Asia" forums inevitably tend to do. We are most conscious of this gap in South Asian studies and will work to bring into focus more scholarship on and from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal and other parts of South Asia.

All research articles in this journal will undergo rigorous peer review, with initial editor screening and anonymous refereeing.

There will also be a book series South Asian History and Culture, and will publish anthologies, readers, monographs and edited collections. Special issues of the journal will become Routledge books under this series.
