Critical Pakistan Studies — New Open-Access Journal from AIPS and CUP
AIPS is excited to announce the debut of Critical Pakistan Studies, a new open-access journal published with the support of Cambridge University Press. Critical Pakistan Studies will publish primary source interpretive research that, in addition to Pakistan and Pakistanis, tackle broader interdisciplinary issues. The journal’s interdisciplinary approach pushes beyond the nation-state, security, Islam, extremism, and other topics that narrowly define the study of Pakistan. It will analyze, discuss, and seek to understand the varied and multi-layered contexts that constitute Pakistan and its people (both past and present and in South Asia and the wider world).
The journal is in affiliation with the Centre d’Etudes de l’Inde et de L’Asie du Sud–Center for South Asian Studies and the University of Exeter South Asia Centre. The journal is now accepting submissions for the inaugural issue which will be published in June 2023 in celebration of AIPS’s 50th anniversary.  More information on the journal and author submission guidelines can be found on the journal’s website: Cambridge.org/cps
