Asian Borderlands is a series from Amsterdam University Press that presents the latest research on borderlands in Asia as well as on the borderlands of Asia – the regions linking Asia with Africa, Europe and Oceania. Its approach is broad: it covers the entire range of the social sciences and humanities. The series explores the social, cultural, geographic, economic and historical dimensions of border-making by states, local communities and flows of goods, people and ideas. It considers territorial borderlands at various scales (national as well as supra- and sub-national) and in various forms (land borders, maritime borders) but also presents research on social borderlands resulting from border-making that may not be territorially fixed, for example linguistic or diasporic communities.

All titles will be available through Open Access, two years after publication.

The series welcomes scholarly monographs and edited volumes in English by both established and early-career researchers.
