Call for Papers: Postgraduate Researchers’ Workshop

The UCL Centre for the Study of South Asia and the Indian Ocean World (CSSA) brings together researchers and postgraduate students working on South Asia from across the disciplines. The Centre forms an important part of UCL’s Institute of Advanced Studies, and promotes research and teaching related to the geographical region of South Asia and its intersections with the wider world, including the South Asian diaspora.

The aim of the Postgraduate Reseachers’ Workshop is to highlight the work of students from across the disciplines at UCL whose current research focuses on South Asia, the Indian Ocean world, and their diasporas. We hope that the workshop will serve as an opportunity for the fruitful exchange of ideas with area specialists across departments, and facilitate networking and new partnerships.

Speakers will be organised into inter-disciplinary thematic clusters, will speak for up to 10-15 minutes on their work, followed by Q&A and a drinks reception. Any students who wish to present should send the title of their paper, and a description of no more than 250 words, to the organisers, Tariq Jazeel (t.jazeel@ucl.ac.uk) or Jagjeet Lally (jagjeet.lally@ucl.ac.uk), by 23 May 2016.
