A new Brill journal — Shii Studies Review

A new Brill journal — Shii Studies Review

A refereed journal with an international editorial and advisory board, the Shii Studies Review (SSR) provides a scholarly forum for research on Shiism. Issued twice a year, the journal publishes peer-reviewed original studies, critical editions of classical and pre-modern texts, and book reviews on Shii law, ḥadīth, Qurʾānic exegesis, philosophy, kalām, ritual and practices, classical and contemporary literature, political thought, and other aspects of the history of Shiism. It is dedicated to the study of Imami, Ismaili, Zaydi, and other other trends in Shii thought throughout history. The goal of the Shii Studies Review is to contribute to the discovery, examination and reinterpretation of different intellectual traditions throughout the history of the Shia.

Taking an expansive view of the richly variegated Shii traditions in both thought and practice and in their cultural and social contexts, the Shii Studies Review makes a distinctive contribution to current scholarship on Shiism and its integration into the broader field of Islamic studies. It actively endeavors to participate in the development of new scholarly approaches and problematics. The intellectual output of this journal is directed at serving the needs of researchers specializing in all fields of Shii studies.

The Shii Studies Review (ISSN 2468-2462, e-ISSN 2468-2470) is published by Brill Adacemic Publishers. Its Executive Editors, Sabine Schmidtke and Hassan Ansari, are both resident scholars of Islamic Intellectual History at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) in Princeton, New Jersey, with a special focus on the study of Shii Islam.

The Shii Studies Review welcomes previously unpublished manuscripts on Shii thought and traditions and invites submissions for its first issue, to be published in May 2017, to be sent to its editorial office at: ssr@ias.edu
