Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences (SHSS) is a bi-annual, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal published by the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla, with its first issue rolling out in 1994. The Journal was conceived along with the inception of the Inter-University Center to fill in for the much needed platform that promoted theoretical thinking and conceptual clarifications. The Journal engages, on a conceptual plane, with issues relating to our understanding of man, civilization, culture, and society. It takes this concern as both its regulative, as well as constitutive, maxim.
