This year we bring you a special double issue dedicated to the study of tribal culture in India. Some of our readers might wonder why we took the decision to publish two special issues on Indian tribal culture successively. The reasons for the decision are complicated and many, but suffice it to say that we chose to do so in good faith. The study of Indian tribal culture thrived during the colonial era, but was curtailed after Independence, since officials deemed it a sensitive issue. In recent years, however, some remarkable work has appeared (mostly in Europe but also in North America) on South Asian tribal culture. | Read the full article >>
