Punjab Research Group

cfp: ‘Punjab: Past, Present, Future’ Punjab Research Group Conference, October 29, 2022 (Oxford*)

Posted in Conferences, News/Information by rsmaan on June 10, 2022

The Punjab Research Group has been hosting conferences at least twice a year since 1984 and was established as an inclusive and all-embracing forum to provide a platform for discussion and debate on issues pertaining to East and West Punjab as well as the Punjabi diaspora. During the past 37 years, the PRG has provided space for academics to interact with each other regardless of territorial or disciplinary boundaries. This is especially important given the often-strained relationship between India and Pakistan, which has prevented discussion and dialogue between scholars of East and West Punjab.

Our second conference for 2022 will be held as a one-day event in Oxford*. We welcome submissions from scholars, academics, young researchers, journalists, artists, and activists for an inter-disciplinary discussion focusing on the theme of ‘Punjab: Past, Present and Future’.

Speakers are invited to give paper-presentations/performances that can cover a broad range of content, including, but not limited to: history, philosophy, politics, gender, religion, environmental studies, economics, diaspora issues, linguistics, literature, poetry, arts, music, and culture.

We particularly welcome proposals exploring the genesis of Punjab, intersections between the ‘3 Punjabs’, going beyond the 1947 borders: to deepen our perspective on the ‘connected histories’, and to envision interrelated futures, of the region.

Please submit an abstract in word document (200 words) and a brief CV to Raj (RS Mann) at punjabresearchgroup@gmail.com by 27th June 2022. Please put ‘ABSTRACT’ in your email subject line. In your word document state your study/abstract title, word count, give details of your name, email address and institutional affiliation (departmental and university/organisation). For any queries contact punjabresearchgroup@gmail.com.

Submissions from grad/postgraduate students are encouraged. Best Presenter Award will be presented to a doctoral student whose presentation is judged to be the best from amongst all the full-time doctoral student presentations. The Award includes cash and a certificate.

If you would like to register as a guestfor this event, please book a ticket using our online form at (https://tinyurl.com/2xshrdzp). The registration fee is £10 per person.

We look forward to seeing you in Oxford* soon!
