WEB - SUBALTERN STUDIES:



For Subaltern Studies, the best online bibliographies are:

Subaltern Studies: Working Bibliography, compiled by Henry Schwarz and Shekhar Krishnan.

This bibliography is neatly divided into five categories: (a) Subaltern Studies Volumes & Anthologies; (b) Major Monographs; (c) Related Essays & Criticism; (d) Book Reviews; (e) Subaltern Studies: Tables of Contents, Volumes I-IX. It is far from comprehensive, and does not appear to include materials published after 1997. The entries in sections (a), (b) and (e) do however represent a useful, if slightly out of date, beginner's overview of significant landmarks in the field.

Subaltern Studies: Bibliography of Articles and Reviews and Listing of Tables of Contents of the Series of Books,
compiled by Henry Schwarz, prepared by Frank Conlon and updated by many scholars, including Shekhar Krishnan, David Ludden and Philip McEldowney.

This is actually several bibliographies in one:
(a) A bibliography of articles and reviews pertinent to Subaltern Studies, published in a variety of sources, which is, however, not exhaustive, and has not been substantially updated since April 1998.
(b) A bibliography of major monographs in Subaltern Studies.
(c) A complete listing of the contents of Subaltern Studies: Volumes I-XI, Selected Subaltern Studies (1988), Subaltern Studies Reader (1997) and Reading Subaltern Studies (2001), indexed both by author and by volume.
(d) A combined listing by author of monographs, articles and reviews pertinent to Subaltern Studies, which is, however, not exhaustive, although it includes entries published as recently as 2001.
