About Sagar

Sagar: A South Asia Research Journal publishes innovative academic writing in the humanities and social sciences of South Asia, as well as critical translations of texts from South Asian languages to English. It was established in 1993 and is published annually by The South Asia Institute at the University of Texas at Austin. Three years ago, we transitioned to a peer-reviewed evaluation process for our annual print volumes. We publish full-length articles and translations every spring and online articles throughout the year. 


Call for Papers:

Extended deadline: SAGAR: A South Asia Research Journal is now accepting full-length research articles and translations for its next print volume, to be published in Spring 2017. The theme of this issue is “Space.” We welcome papers that:

  • Analyze South Asian history, culture, politics, arts, and society in comparison with other regions of the world
  • Look at space in terms of scope, latitude, margin, position, range, and location
  • Engage different kinds of narratives that can be located in but not restricted to local, global, (trans)national, institutional, digital/virtual, media, performative, literary, domestic, religious, political, cultural, social, ecological, and communal spaces

The deadline for submission is December 15, 2016. Please send your manuscripts or questions tosagarjournal@gmail.com. Submissions should be: 

  • 8,000-10,000 words and include a 250-word abstract

  • Manuscripts are expected to follow APA guidelines.

Submissions should include:

 Two files in Microsoft Word or PDF format. Both files should include:

 1. Article submission

 3. For translations, a scanned copy of the original source text is required.

One of the files should also include a title page with the author’s name and email address as well as a 100-word biography of the author. The second file will be for blind submission and cannot contain the name or contact information of the author.

Sagar publishes innovative academic writing in the humanities and social sciences of South Asia, as well as critical translations. It was established in 1993 and is published annually by the South Asia Institute at the University of Texas at Austin. Submissions for our print issue are blindly evaluated by an editorial board of advanced scholars in the field.

Sagar is listed on EBSCO databases, which are used for academic research by tens of thousands of institutions worldwide. This will substantially enhance the visibility of articles published in the journal.

Besides our annual print volume, we also publish online essays all through the year. These essays should be 1,500 words or less and should include citations. Submissions with images, video and/or audio are encouraged. Online essays are blindly evaluated by an editorial collective of UT graduate students in consultation with our faculty board.

Our archive reviews are also published throughout the year. We encourage contributions from scholars who have recently consulted particular archives. Contributors should include information about archive holdings, accessibility and fees, working hours, duplication, and food and lodging.
