The Highlander Journal is an academic, open-access, and peer reviewed online journal, published by the University of Edinburgh, broadly concerned with the study of Asia’s highland communities historically situated at the margins of the state. Articles published in the Highlander elucidate the analogous histories, languages, cultures, politics, and religions of primarily ethnic minorities living in the upland terrains linking Nepal and the Tibetan plateau with Northeast India, Western china, and the highland communities of Southeast Asia – a vast, congruous region sometimes referred to as ‘Zomia’.
