Cooperation between the Draupadi publishing house and CrossAsia-eBooks
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 first Draupadi title offered by CrossAsia-eBooks is Schaubühnen der Öffentlichkeit: Das Jatra-Wandertheater in Westbengalen (Indien), a PhD dissertation by the ethnologist Hans-Martin Kunz. The print edition is still available in bookshops or directly at the Draupadi publishing house.
The next electronic publication of a Draupadi book will be Markus Schleiter’s Die Birhor. Ethnographie und die Folgen. Ein indischer "Stamm" im Spiegel kolonialer und postkolonialer Beschreibungen (2008). It is planned to appear in Autumn 2017.
