One Sentence Summary: Journal focused on cultural politics and social conditions in Nepal.


Studies in Nepali History and Society (SINHAS) aims to further understanding of cultural politics and social conditions in Nepal through a commitment to historical analysis, attention to Nepali scholarship, and a willingness to explore new terrain. The journal provides an interdisciplinary forum for original research with an emphasis is on work that i) opens up to scholarship areas of study that have not traditionally been part of "Nepal Studies" and ii) casts new light on familiar topics. Articles are either in English or Nepali.

SINHAS will be of value not only to scholars of Nepal, but also to development practitioners, and to other South Asianists who seek to understand the complex history of Nepali society. SINHAS encourages clear and jargon-free prose. Thus it will also be a useful source for travellers and others interested in Nepal who seek a more in-depth picture of Nepali society than that provided by guidebooks and travel literature.

Contents of SINHAS include: Research-based articles by academics, development workers and social activists; essays and fiction about Nepali history and social life by creative writers; multi-volume book review essays; "For a Scholarship of Nepal," an occasional forum for critical reflection on the state of Nepal scholarship; "Commentary," a forum for opinion pieces on subjects of contemporary concern in Nepal by authors with first-hand experience in the area under discussion; and reference bibliographies on topics of importance to Nepal Studies.
