The University of Chicago will hold its annual Graduate Student Conference on Southern Asia in two sessions, February 24th and 25th, 2006.
Session 1 will be open to general scholarly work on Southern Asia, and include traditional panels on history, philology, anthropology, history of religions, colonialism, and so on. Due to internal fellowship requirements, however, priority of selection for these panels will go to University of Chicago students. But interested students from other universities are still encouraged to submit proposals, which will be considered according to the overall number and quality of submissions.
Session 2, on this year’s conference theme, is entitled “Imagining Empire: Visions of a Unified Polity in South Asia, from Antiquity to the Present.” We invite graduate students nationwide, in all disciplines, working on all time periods, to bring their expertise and imagination to bear on this topic.
