Improvising South Asia – 43rd Annual Conference on South Asia 2014

 In Call for Papers, Uncategorized

Dear Past Conference Participants,

We are now accepting proposal submissions for the 2014 43rd Annual Conference on South Asia, to be held on October 16-19, 2014 at the Madison Concourse Hotel (1 West Dayton Street, Madison, WI 53703). The theme of this year’s conference is “Improvising South Asia.” We especially welcome panels that consider this theme in relation to a wide range of settings, whether it be music and theatre, architecture and design, or economic and cultural life. We hope to have an intellectually and geographically diverse set of discussions around this topic, and we also encourage proposal submissions which do not address the conference theme. For general submission guidelines, you may visit our FAQ page.

Please submit online requests to hold a Pre-Conference online by April 1, 2014. All pre-conferences will be held on October 16, 2014.
