KARSA (EISSN: 2442-4285) is a peer-reviewed national journal published by the Islamic State Institute of Madura. It has been national accredited since 2017 by Ministry of Research Technology and Higher Education of Republic Indonesia. Since 2003, Karsa: Jurnal Sosial dan Budaya Keislaman (as a peer reviewed and open access journal) has reflected the Islamic State Institute of Madura’ strong commitment to publishing the best of theoretical or empirically grounded, multidisciplinary, and contemporary research on Southeast Asia especially in ethnic studies and related areas. Intended for a regional as well as global readership. Jurnal Sosial dan Budaya Keislaman is published two times a year, June and December. The new journal aims to promote excellent, agenda-setting scholarship and provide a forum for dialogue and collaboration both within and beyond the region. This journal engages in wide-ranging and in-depth discussions that are attuned to the issues, debates, and imperatives within the region, while affirming the importance of learning and sharing ideas on a cross-country, global, and historical scale. An integral part of the journal’s mandate is to foster scholarship that is capable of bridging the continuing divide in area studies between the social sciences, anthropological studies, philosophy, political issues, sociology, and humanities, on the one hand, and the religious cultural studies on the other hand. Karsa: Jurnal Sosial dan Budaya Keislaman also refers to research and social issues that specialize on the Islamic culture, and humanities of the different states and ethnic groups of Southeast Asia (including Madurologi). Embracing a wide range of academic disciplines in the social sciences, humanities, and cultural studies the journal publishes manuscripts oriented toward a scholarly readership but written to be accessible to non-specialists.
