Pakistaniaat: A Journal of Pakistan Studies Summer 2010 Issue Now Released!

I finished the layout for the Summer 2010 issue of Pakistaniaat: A Journal of Pakistan Studies tonight. This is our fourth issue, and it is chock-full of articles, reviews, interviews, and poetry. It is an open access journal, so check it out here.

The editor is trying out something new with this issue. All of the individual articles are still freely available and will remain so, because it is an open access journal. Since the beginning, you could also purchase a print version here to help fund the journal’s costs, which include site maintenance, software, and honoraria. Now, if you would like to download a PDF of the full issue to read and print on your own, you may do so for a small donation. This should go live tomorrow on the official site here.

The Summer 2010 issue includes:

Cover art: Amar RazaAl-Kauthar, (Watercolor 3’x4′), 108th sura of the Qur’an.
