Ad Fontes: Texts on Central Eurasian Societies and Cultures
The Sinor Research Institute for Inner Asian Studies at Indiana University is pleased to announced the launching of a new imprint — Ad Fontes: Texts on Central Eurasian Societies and Cultures.
This imprint will consist of translations into English from the languages of the region or surrounding territories of primary sources that have scholarly and pedagogical value for what they reveal to readers about the societies that created them or were being observed. We are looking for translations of little known or newly discovered material, either singular texts or collections of texts with a common theme, that are accompanied by the usual apparatus for a scholarly edition:
- An introduction to the text or texts that places them in both local and comparative contexts;
- A translation, along with facsimiles of the original(s);
- Explanatory footnotes;
- Illustrations and maps as appropriate;
- A brief bibliography; and,
- Appropriate indices
The length may vary from 40 to 135 pages, double-spaced, and each project will appear in print and digital versions. Information about publications as they appear will be made available on this page.
