We wish to acknowledge that Asian Ethnology has reached a significant academic milestone since its inception in 1942. We are marking the eightieth birthday of the journal this year by publishing its eightieth volume.
Asian Ethnology 80-1, a special issue on South Asian Nationalisms guest edited by Frank J. Korom and Jan Magnusson, is now available as downloadable PDFs or via your browser.
Thank you for your continued support of Asian Ethnology.
