The current issue of the SACh actually concentrates on two aspects. On the one hand, the FOCUS section deals with print journalism in India as it developed in the colonial and post-colonial era. Originally planned as a separate edited volume, the project collapsed due to corona confusions. As a consequence, Amelia and I decided to publish the contributions of the those patient authors who were still available in this volume of the South Asia Chronicle which is why the FOCUS section has become rather voluminous.

On the other hand, in this volume a particular emphasis lies on the RESEARCH REVIEW section. The editorial board decided to expand the notion of a research review and to share the experiences of doctoral field research during the corona pandemic which are accompanied by a theoretically framing essay. Of course, a couple of conventional review articles have also been included in the section.

The FORUM section comprises, as usual, articles on various aspects on cultural, political, historical and sociological aspects, like reflections on the academic literature produced after the last general elections in India, or on the politicisation of Dehli's Muslims in the 1910s.
