Focus and Scope

The “South Asia Chronicle”, an annual bilingual (German-English) online and print journal, is an interdisciplinary platform for exploring the politics, economics, society, history and culture of the South Asian region, which includes the states of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, the Maldives, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

In examining questions on a diverse range of themes and issues such as environment, sports, migration, gender, media and literature, the “South Asia Chronicle“ particularly takes international and trans-regional aspects into consideration. Each volume has a thematic focus within which cultural, social, economic and political topics of contemporary relevance are highlighted. The journal’s “Forum” section provides a space for contributions which, while falling outside the thematic focus of the volume, are of specific contemporary or scholarly relevance. Every volume also includes a short section for reviews.

The “South Asia Chronicle” will be published every year in April/May. A printed version of the journal can also be subscribed to on request.

Contribute

The thematic focus of each respective volume is decided by an editorial board of six members, which is also responsible for selecting and editing contributions to the journal.
Since the “South Asia Chronicle” addresses a broad readership, it is requested that the contributions be written in an essayistic style with minimal explanatory notes (Harvard Style, e.g. (Müller 1989: 197-9)) and with a bibliography of further reading at the end.

The editorial team reserves the right to select, edit and shorten articles.
