Sixth European PhD workshop in South Asia Studies hosted by SASNET
SASNET and Lund University are hosting the Sixth European PhD workshop in South Asia Studies that will take place at Falsterbo Kursgård, Höllviken from 17 to 19 September 2012. The workshop is jointly co-organised by the European Association for South Asian Studies (EASAS); Heidelberg University, Germany; Ghent University, Belgium; University of Edinburgh, UK; Le Centre d'Études de l'Inde et de l'Asie du Sud (CEIAS), Paris, France; and SASNET/Lund University, Sweden. The previous PhD workshop was held in September 2011 in Paris where two PhD students from each participating university (including Lund University) presented papers. See report from the Paris workshop.
The workshop's format gives each PhD candidate the responsibility of introducing the paper of another participant and raising some initial questions. A senior scholar then acts as discussant and provides feedback on the paper, prompting further debate. This format broadens perspectives on research methods, concepts, and theory by helping students consider questions from a variety of disciplines.
This year the two PhD students that will represent Lund University will be Arun Rana from the Division of Water Resources Engineering, and Ive Brissman from the Centre for Theology and Religious Studies.
