The aim of this conference is to explore historical connections between Scotland and the Indian subcontinent, involving its entire geographical scope including the likes of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burma, Ceylon, India and Pakistan. We are interested in both colonial and postcolonial input and themes might include, but are not limited to, cultural exchange, health and medicine, trade, industry, religion, conflict/cooperation, migration (both directions), gender, British East India Company, identity and subaltern responses. The key to proposals should be the interface between Scotland and the Indian subcontinent and its peoples.
Abstracts of no more than 300 words are invited. Responses to the first Call for Papers should be submitted no later than 23 January 2012 and can be sent by email to Dr Iain Hutchison at firstname.lastname@example.org
Publication. Speakers may be invited to submit full versions of their papers to the Journal of Scottish Historical Studies for consideration for publication.
