ECSAS 2020 Reflecting on Disciplinary Boundaries

 

26th European Conference on South Asian Studies
Vienna, Austria
29 July – 1 August 2020

Call for Panels

The 26th European Conference on South Asian Studies (ECSAS) will be held at the University of Vienna, Austria, from 29 July to 1 August 2020. On behalf of the European Association for South Asian Studies (EASAS) and the Academic and Organising Committees we cordially invite you to submit panel proposals.

 

There is a long tradition of South Asian Studies in Vienna, both at the University of Vienna and at the Austrian Academy of Sciences, going back to the mid-19th century. While a strong focus has been on South Asia’s premodern period, recent decades have witnessed a process of historical as well as disciplinary expansion. South Asian Studies in Austria today covers a wide range of disciplines and interests, and extends across several institutions. Against this background the motto of the Vienna conference will be “Reflecting on Discipli­nary Boundaries”. We particularly welcome panels which reflect on disciplinary boundaries and promote trans-, inter- or multidisciplinary approaches.

 

The panel submission is open from 4 February until 14 April 2019. Please go to the conference website: https://ecsas2020.univie.ac.at/

Due to technical reasons EASAS is not able to accept applications for membership until the end of February 2019. Other services remain unaffected by this. EASAS sincerely apologizes for any inconveniences and hopes for your understanding. EASAS is looking forward for new members to apply from March 2019 onwards.

The opportunity to apply for membership will be announced as soon as possible on our homepage.

 

All panel proposals must include the title of the panel, the name(s), affiliation(s) and the EASAS membership number of the convener(s), a contact e-mail, and a short and long abstract of the panel topic. Innovative elements of the panel should be particularly high­lighted. Names of tentative paper contributors may be included (optional).

 

The short abstract must not exceed 300 characters, long abstracts must not exceed 1700 characters and should be text only. Please keep in mind that all panel proposals (and sub­sequent papers) must be in English.
