"Worlds of South Asia"

One day workshop – 17th Sep 2012 – 9.30-17.30

The 4th annual CSAW invites paper submissions for a one day workshop to be held at the University of Copenhagen. The aim is to showcase the wide variety of worlds – social, political, cultural, financial, developmental, historical, mythical, regional and/or global assemblages – that make the idea of South Asia. The workshop welcomes ongoing scholarly projects on any South Asian locality – both within the region as well as in transnational sites – and themes pertaining to the region’s history, culture, society and politics.

The workshop will have two speakers Thomas Blom Hansen, Stanford University and Faisal Devji, University of Oxford who will give keynote lectures on their most recent works.
