“Rethinking the Himalayas”: 2nd Annual NHRN Conference CFP

May 9, 2019

The Nordic Himalaya Research Network (NHRN) Conference is an event for researchers in the Nordic region and beyond who work on all aspects of research related to the Himalaya region, spanning India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. The NHRN was established in 2018 with the aim of bringing together scholars from across disciplines who work on this easily-overlooked but strategically important region. The conference offers a platform for scholars of the Himalayas to present their research and meet other researchers, and it is particularly intended to be a supportive meeting point for emerging scholars.

The NHRN conference runs for a full day on Thursday, May 9th at University of Copenhagen and will be organized so as to accommodate as many participants as possible. We especially encourage graduate students to attend and present their work. Any research related to the Himalayas, within any discipline is relevant, including presentations on research projects, new initiatives, book launches, roundtable sessions, etc. Travel and accommodation costs are borne by participants, but for graduate students wishing to attend some financial support for travel expenses is available. Participation in the conference is free of charge, but it is necessary to register for the conference. Registration will close on May 1st.

Dan V. Hirslund, Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies, KU (hirslund@hum.ku.dk)
