About the Journal
Comparative Studies of South Asia, Africa and the Middle East (CSSAAME) seeks to bring region and area studies into conversation with a rethinking of theory and the disciplines. Its aim is twofold: to ask how area and region are implicated in the production of geohistorical universals and, conversely, to attend to the specificity of non-Western social, political, and intellectual formations as these challenge normative assumptions of social life, cultural practice, and historical transformation.
The journal is committed to working across temporal divides and asking how concepts and practices might be rethought and redeployed through new narratives of connection and comparison.
