New Publication: Hinglaj Devi

Dr. Jürgen Schaflechner's first book, "Hinglaj Devi: Identity, Change, and Solidification at a Hindu Temple in Pakistan" has appeared with Oxford University Press New York! This Heidelberg PhD dissertation of 2014 (supervisors: Hans Harder, William Sax) was marked summa cum laude and is "the first monograph to address the beliefs and practices of Hindus in today's Islamic Republic of Pakistan" (publisher's blurb, cf.).

Open Access publication of Markus Schleiter’s „Die Birhor“

The Draupadi publishing house in Heidelberg and CrossAsia-eBooks started in Spring 2017 a co-operation to publish electronic Open Access versions of selected books on South Asia that appeared originally as print editions and are not scheduled for reprint. The second Draupadi title offered by CrossAsia-eBooks is Die Birhor - Ethnographie und die Folgen: ein indischer “Stamm” im Spiegel kolonialer und postkolonialer Beschreibungen (URL), a PhD dissertation by the ethnologist Markus Schleiter. The print edition is still available in bookshops or directly at the Draupadi publishing house.
