Nordic conference on South Asian Studies for Young Scholars

Posted in Conferences, News/Information by Pippa on January 20, 2009

On August 17 – 19, 2009, the Swedish South Asian Studies Network (SASNET) will organize a three day long Nordic multidisciplinary conference on South Asian Studies for Young Scholars. The conference will take place at Falsterbo conference retreat outside Malmö in Sweden.

The aim of the Nordic Conference on South Asian Studies for Young Scholars is to gather master students, doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers and other junior scholars in the Nordic countries (including Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) who focus on South Asia in their research studies. The conference will provide an opportunity for young scholars to present their future and  ongoing research projects, establish contacts with colleagues in the Nordic countries, and discuss the challenges and opportunities of career planning and conducting research in South Asian Studies. The event will also give young scholars a chance to learn about ongoing Nordic network activities in South Asian Studies and together with senior colleagues discuss important issues related to funding, publication, academic networking and practical implications of conducting research in the South Asian region. To achieve the overall objective the conference will include plenary and thematic sessions in which the participants will address themes and questions related to South Asian Studies from both disciplinary and interdisciplinary angles.

The conference is open for master students, doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers in all disciplines who have special research interest in the South Asian region and are affiliated to universities in the Nordic countries. The conference fee is 150 SEK (15 Euro) and participants are responsible for their own travels, while SASNET will provide free board and lodging at Falsterbo conference retreat.

Registration will be open between February 1 and May 15 on a conference website to be announced in the beginning of 2009.

Welcome!
