A biannual journal published by Brill, the Journal of Sufi Studies furnishes an international scholarly forum for research on Sufism. Taking an expansive view of the subject, the journal brings together all disciplinary perspectives. It publishes peer-reviewed articles and book reviews on the historical, cultural, social, philosophical, political, anthropological, literary, artistic and other aspects of Sufism in all times and places. By promoting an understanding of the richly variegated Sufi tradition in both thought and practice and in its cultural and social contexts, the Journal of Sufi Studies makes a distinctive contribution to current scholarship on Sufism and its integration into the broader field of Islamic studies. The journal accepts submissions in English, French and German. Submission guidelines and procedures may be found at www.brill.nl/jss. General queries may be addressed to the Executive Editor, Erik S. Ohlander, at firstname.lastname@example.org. http://www.brill.com/publications/journals/journal-sufi-studies Best regards, John Curry UNLV Department of History
