Dear all,

we are pleased to announce a new project launched by The Freiburg Research Group in Saami Studies.

SAMICA (ISSN 2199-6229) is a multidisciplinary book series and publishes shorter contributions on the languages, literatures, and cultures of Sápmi written potentially in any language. Publications include the results of scientific research projects, descriptive and teaching materials as well as Saami texts in translation and the original.

The editors of SAMICA are Thomas Mohnike (Université de Strasbourg), Michael Rießler and Joshua Wilbur (both Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg).

The first SAMICA book appeared October 1st. It is a German translation of Nils-Aslak Valkeapää's "Greetings from Lappland". The second book is a small Pite Saami dictionary, which will be printed in November. The third book project is also almost finished and is a collection of Skolt Saami texts from Neiden. It will appear in February 2015. 

More books about different Saami languages are planned and will be announced later. We are also open to your manuscripts and suggestions.
