The theme of this year's conference is trust.
Intangible yet essential, trust helps scholars gain insight into the lived experience of others. From anthropology to journalism and oral history to religious studies, trust sits at the heart of scholars' interpretive work and credibility. More broadly, its absence between individuals and communities--ethnic or religious, linguistic or gendered--permeates the literature, economics, politics, and history of South Asia.
Submissions for the 44th Annual Conference on South Asia are closed at this time.
A full schedule for the conference with accepted panels and papers will be posted to the website in early June following notification to all authors.
