Special issue of Asian Ethnology on “South Asian Nationalisms”

Logo of Asian Ethnology journal in black, white and grey.

The issue, which is the result of a workshop at Lund University in 2020, is now available online.

The latest issue of the Asian Ethnology journal, published in July 2021, features essays and reviews exploring various aspects of nationalism in the South Asian region.

Links to the articles of Asian Ethnology 80 (1) can be found here.

The articles are the joint outcome of a two-day workshop at Lund University in April 2018, hosted by SASNET and funded by the Crafoord Foundation. In several sessions, workshop participants presented their work and discussed what similarities and differences would emerge when looking at nationalism, which was long viewed as a strictly Western affair, from different geographical and ethnic perspectives on the subcontinent. Professor Frank Korom, Boston University and editor of Asian Ethnology, Associate Professor Jan Magnusson, Lund University, and SASNET Director Andreas Johansson were the lead organisers.
