New Call for Abstracts: SASNET South Asia Research Workshop 2014
June 13, 2014 - 00:00-June 15, 2014 - 00:00
The Swedish South Asian Studies Network (SASNET) at Lund University organises an inter-disciplinary Research Workshop on South Asia: Culture, Technology, and Development on 13–15 June 2014 at the Falsterbo Conference Resort, Sweden. The conference is organized in collaboration with the Nordic Centre in India (NCI) and the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies (NIAS), Copenhagen University.
SASNET is now accepting abstracts of research papers for presentation at the workshop.
The main objective of the workshop is to bridge the gap between Nordic researchers in various disciplines working on South Asia. We will discuss interdisciplinary research in terms of theoretical and methodological approaches, assumptions, ethical considerations, and practices. The workshop will consider interdisciplinary research that is already being done in the field of South Asian studies, and will give participants an opportunity to explore promising new areas for future research. Talks by three prominent researchers will be featured.
The workshop is divided into three main thematic sessions.
Session A: Methods, Fieldwork and Ethics in the South Asian context
Session B: Culture , Religion and Technology in South Asia
Session C: Theory, Practice and Development in South Asia
Researchers and young scholars interested in submitting papers at any of the aforementioned sessions are requested to submit an abstract of individual papers (maximum 500 words) as an email attachment addressed to Hawwa Lubna, by email [email protected]. Deadline for submission is 31 Janurary 2014. Please specify clearly in the email in which session you would like to present the paper.
A clear goal of the workshop discussions is to create strong academic cooperation on South Asia between different disciplines in the form of joint publications or new research projects. Therefore, participants are highly encouraged to send us ideas for new research project or publication in no more than 100 words. We are also exploring the option of bringing out the previously unpublished papers presented at the workshop in a special publication.
