The Department and Centre for the Study of Religion at the University of Toronto Is Pleased to Present
A Call for Papers
The 2011 North American Hindu Studies Graduate Student Conference
September 30th to October 1st, 2011
The Department and Centre for the Study of Religion at the University of Toronto invites paper proposals for its Hindu Studies Graduate Conference. Proposals are welcomed from graduate students engaged in original research in any field related to the study of Hindu traditions (religion, philosophy, anthropology, history, art history, linguistics, sociology, South Asian or diasporic studies, women and gender studies, political science, etc.). This conference will offer a congenial platform for graduate students to present, discuss, and receive feedback on their work from both peers and faculty in related disciplines. Presentations should be limited to twenty minutes. Proposals may be submitted individually or in panels of three or four.
The conference organizers hope to be able to cover the costs of lodging and food for paper presenters at the conference. However, presenters should seek funding from their home institutions to cover travel costs.
