Pakistaniaat: A Journal of Pakistan Studies: Call for Submissions
We seek submissions for the first issue of Pakistaniaat: A Journal of Pakistan Studies for
publication in June 2009. Please submit your scholarly articles, creative works, or book reviews.
Pakistaniaat: A Journal of Pakistan Studies is a peer-reviewed, multi-disciplinary electronic
journal offering a forum for a serious academic and creative engagement with various aspects of
Pakistani culture, literature, and politics. Thus, Pakistaniaat aims to provide a public space on the
Internet to introduce and discuss hitherto neglected aspects of Pakistani cultural and literary
production and to make this knowledge available to a worldwide audience.

South Asia and Postcoloniality, we feel that under the current climate of high capital and war on

needs a particular space of its own in our academic and creative undertakings.
This e-journal, thus, aims to provide an inclusive venue to all those interested in issues
specifically related to Pakistan, its culture, literature, and its place in the region as well as the
world. We aim to accomplish the important mission of “covering Pakistan” by publishing critical
essays, creative works, translations, and critical reviews of books about Pakistani culture and
