Conference and PhD. workshop organized by the Nordic Association for South Asian Studies in Helsinki 26.-29.5. 2010
The international conference Globalizing South Asia brings scholars from different fields (history, anthropology, sociology, economics, geography, environmental science, development studies and politics) together to analyze cultural, economic, political and environmental connections in South Asia. How does the history of South Asia´s translocal connections help us understand present day globalization? How are global political, economic, and environmental processes impacting South Asia and what are the local responses? What kind of cultural dynamism does the increase in translocal connections produce?
We invite contributions which take into account the broader context of local issues concerning culture and society in globalizing South Asia, both empirically and theoretically. The conference is organized by the Nordic Association for South Asian Studies, and we invite both Nordic and non-Nordic scholars. The conference is meant to stimulate networking and exchange, and to create a forum for discussions for scholars and doctoral students within and outside the Nordic countries. We aim to publish a peer-reviewed volume of selected papers after the conference.
