    Description of Activity

    Subjects covered by this journal Anthropology - Soc Sci; Area Studies; Asian History; Asian Studies; Cultural Studies; History; Humanities; Regional Anthropology; Social Sciences; South Asia; South Asian Studies Aims & scope 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. To this purpose, we commission special issues to be guest edited. 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.
