We are very proud to announce the launch of a new South Asian studies journal: The South Asianist! Our inaugural issue titled: Marginalities and Aspirations was previewed during a special event honouring public health practitioner and human rights defender Dr. Binayak Sen on the 14th of June at the University of Edinburgh's School of Social and Political Science. The full issue - including articles, a film review, and two video interviews - including one with Dr. Sen - are now available. We would particularly like to thank Edinburgh University's Digital Library and the wonderful team that worked tirelessly to build, support and host the online journal in coordination with the journal's editorial team and graphic designer. We hope this will be the beginning of a fruitful, widely accessible periodical covering critical issues related to the study of South Asia.
