Responding to the urgent need for an interdisciplinary, high-quality, peer-reviewed and independent academic publication in Vietnam, the Harvard-Yenching Institute now supports a scholarly series that concentrates on various disciplines of the humanities and social sciences. The first three-year plan of the series includes volumes on anthropology, literature, sociology, history and archaeology, philosophy and religion, and cultural studies. Six books dedicated to these disciplines will be printed in Vietnamese. The first book in anthropology, The Transformation of Religions and Religious Beliefs in Vietnam Today, came out in November 2008.
