This two-day workshop will bring together the ongoing work of advanced graduate students and recent PhDs working on topics of current interest in modern South Asian Studies. We invite submissions of paper proposals from all disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences, particularly those that will foster cross-disciplinary dialogue and exchange of ideas from across the diverse regions of South Asia. Past papers have tackled issues ranging from film and ethnomusicology to state formation and elections and have presented new theoretical and methodological alternatives in the study of South Asia.
A complete submission will include paper title, an abstract of no more than 250 words, complete contact information, academic affiliation, discipline, year in graduate program and a brief one page CV. Submission must be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 1, 2011. Applications which do not match the above submission guidelines will not be considered. Successful candidates will be informed by November 1, 2011. Final papers of 7,000 words must be submitted by January 1, 2012. Complete papers will be placed on a secure website to facilitate discussion amongst the entire group. Accommodation and meals will be provided to all selected candidates, and travel costs of up to $500 will be reimbursed on production of receipts.
Sponsored by the South Asian Studies Council at the Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale University.
