Call for dissertation abstracts

The editors of the European Bulletin of Himalayan Research (EBHR) are pleased to introduce a new feature that will be published in the journal on a regular basis: we are currently considering including abstracts for PhD dissertations defended between 2017 and 2019.

It is our conviction that disseminating information about the work of young scholars in a timely manner is an important responsibility. Dissertations to be considered must fall within the geographical and disciplinary scope of the journal. The subjects covered by the journal range from geography and economics to anthropology, sociology, philology, history, art history, archaeology and history of religions. In terms of its geographical scope, the journal has published material that covers the Himalayas within a broad definition and not limited to the geological region, but taken to include the Karakorum, Hindukush, Ladakh, southern Tibet, Kashmir, north-west India, Nepal, Sikkim, Bhutan and North-East India.

Feel free to circulate the call (to download the PDF, click here) and if you are interested in having your dissertation featured in the journal, please get in touch.
