This MIFS newsletter appeared twice a year. It contained a wide range of information and kept you updated about our research activities (workshops, conferences, fieldwork reports, book releases) and also about ongoing research around the theme of History and Sufism in the Indian subcontinent. It was initally co-edited by Michel Boivin and Rémy Delage as part of the activity of the French Study Group on Sindh (MIFS) between 2008 and 2013. Since then, the newsletter has been redesigned and has taken off again.
