This state-of-the-art series, with a primary focus on modern and contemporary periods, but also with interest in earlier eras, will draw on humanities and social sciences as well as interdisciplinary approaches to examine the ways in which South Asia is and has been global and shaping the world. Volumes will present new work on social and intellectual history, South Asian connections in Asia and beyond, popular culture, the history and sociology of science and technology, literature, and visual and material culture. Contemporary topics will include the changing experience of democracy, growing environmental risks, community formation in the Digital Age, and the proliferation of cultural industries. Global connections have been negotiated by trade regimes as well as the appeal of South Asian goods, design, religion, visual and performing arts, and technical expertise brought by millions of migrants. Political turmoil, natural disasters, and environmental degradation have also linked the world to South Asia in the form of development assistance, issues around human security, climate change, and endangered species conservation. Global South Asia welcomes scholarship on these topics and more. | Printable PDF of the series brochure.
