Call for Submissions: South Asia Across Disciplines

by Salman Hameed

Here is a call for submission for a new book, South Asia Across the Disciplines. It will be published jointly by the University of California, University of Chicago, and Columbia press as the first of the series of books. Not a too shabby list of publishers.

Here is the announcement, but did I miss the deadline somewhere? I can't seem to find it on the website. If that is the case, I blame Dubai for that (yes, I'm still here):

With support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, three of the academy’s leading publishers in South Asian studies have combined their resources to launch a major new series devoted to first books in this vibrant area of scholarship.
“South Asia Across the Disciplines” publishes work that aims to raise innovative questions in the field. These include the relationship between South Asian studies and the disciplines; the conversation between past and present in South Asia; the history and nature of modernity, especially in relation to cultural change, political transformation, secularism and religion, and globalization. Above all, the series showcases monographs that strive to open up new archives, especially in South Asian languages, and suggest new methods and approaches, while demonstrating that South Asian scholarship can be at once deep in expertise and broad in appeal. We invite manuscripts from art history, history, literary studies, philology or textual studies, philosophy, religion, and the interpretive social sciences, especially those that show an openness to disciplines other than their own.
As a collaboration among leading university presses, “South Asia Across the Disciplines” marks a new approach. Each book in the series is published under the imprint of one of the three presses, but all are promoted as part of the series, sharing in design, advertising, and publicity.
