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 conference 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, teaching and practical implications of conducting research in the South Asian region.

 

The conference is open for master students, doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers from all disciplines who have research interest in the South Asian Studies and are affiliated to universities in the Nordic countries. The working language of the conference is English.
