Presentation

The history of the half-yearly journal Archipel, which was created in 1970, goes hand in hand with the emergence of South Asia in French research. Now based at the Centre Asie du Sud-Est (UMR 8170, CNRS/EHESS), it is still the only French scholarly journal in the humanities and social sciences focused on Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, the Philippines and East Timor.

The international reputation of the journal is above all grounded in its double receptivity: to work privileging a historical approach; to studies and collaborative projects with colleagues who are specialists of other Asian regions. Thus, the journal has come to privilege South Asia in its role as the main Asian crossroads.

With regard to contents, Archipel stands out in relation to all competing journals both through the acceptance of longer-than-normal texts, and through the particular care devoted to execution (many color illustrations and attention to audio material). The journal also regularly publishes special issues, which is proof of its capacity to elicit a variety of collaborative projects.

The proportion of articles in English and the number of foreign authors from a variety of scholarly and geographical backgrounds are proof of Archipel’s international reputation.

Archipel is funded by the CNRS, the EHESS, the EFEO and the INALCO.
