The 22nd European Conference on Modern South Asian Studies, ECMSAS, will be
organized by ISCTE- Lisbon University Institute on 25-28 July 2012.

For the last decades, the ECMSAS has been an important platform for debate and
illustration of contemporary trends in South Asian studies worldwide.
The ECMSAS conferences are held biannually under the auspices of the European
Association of South Asian Studies (EASAS), a professional, non-profit
organization of scholars engaged in research and teaching concerning South Asia
with regard to all periods and fields of study.

Scholars and students from any field of research related to the South Asian
region are invited to participate in the 22nd European Conference on Modern
South Asian Studies (ECMSAS) in Lisbon (Portugal).

The conference convener is Professor Rosa Maria Perez, anthropologist,
Department of Anthropology, ISCTE-Lisbon University Institute and researcher of
CRIA-IUL. The co-convener is Professor Diogo Ramada Curto, Historian, Faculdade
De Ciências Sociais e Humanas, Universidade Nova de Lisboa.

The closing date for panel suggestions will be 15 April 2011.

The steering committee will meet in May to decide on the panels to be accepted,
and the selected panels will be listed on both the EASAS and the ECSAS
conference web-sites soon after the decisions have been made, most probably
towards the end of May 2011.
