South Asia book series seeking a new editor


Expressions of Interest Announcement: Applications Sought for a Chief Editor of the Routledge/Asian Studies Association of Australia (ASAA) South Asia Book Series

The South Asia Book Series of the Asian Studies Association of Australia invites applications for a new Chief Editor, or two co-Editors. In recent years, under the editorship of Professor Duncan McDuie-Ra, the series has seen a flurry of activity with six new titles and several more projects under review. The ideal candidate will continue to build upon the series’ existing momentum. Expressions of Interest are sought for scholars with prior editing experience who are ideally mid-career or late-career (though exceptions can be made based on the candidate’s statement of interest and evidence of editing capacity). The role also includes scope to discover potential new editorial board members. No specific disciplinary background is required though an appreciation of interdisciplinarity is encouraged.

The series publishes outstanding research on the countries and peoples of South Asia across a wide range of disciplines including history, politics and political economy, anthropology, geography, literature, sociology and the fields of cultural studies, communication studies and gender studies. Founded in 1986 to publish outstanding work in the social sciences and humanities, the series entered a new phase in 2010 when it joined with Routledge to continue a notable tradition of Australian-based research about South Asia. Works in the series are published in both UK and Indian editions.

Additional information about the series can be found on the ASAA website and on the Routledge website.

To apply, please send a one-page Expression of Interest and an up-to-date academic CV to Dr Georgina Drew ( by 15 November 2019. Candidates will be selected shortly thereafter.

Please contact Dr Drew if you have any questions about the role.
