South Asian History and Culture

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : SOUTH ASIAN HISTORY AND CULTURE


From the Taylor & Francis website for the journal:

South Asian History and Culture (SAHC) is a multidisciplinary journal that provides an integrated perspective on the field of South Asian studies. The journal brings together research on South Asia in the humanities and social sciences, and provides scholars with a platform covering, but not restricted to, their particular fields of interest and specialization. Such an approach is critical to the field, for the development of more informed and broader perspectives, and of more overarching theoretical conceptions.

“SAHC brings together established areas of study (eg. nationalism, communalism, gender, language and literature) and more recent frameworks (e.g. minority rights, sexuality studies, terrorism). A focus is also to make more mainstream the more recently developed disciplines in the field of South Asian studies, which have to date remained specialized fields, for instance research on film, media, photography, sport, medicine and the environment…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 do. We are conscious of this gap in South Asian studies and work to bring into focus more scholarship on and from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and other parts of South Asia.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2009)  to present.
