South Asia across the Nordic Region 2018

The South Asia across the Nordic Region (SANR) annual meeting 2018 will be held in Oslo on 5 and 6 June

The SANR annual meeting aims to facilitate greater collaboration across Nordic research institutions and universities. The need for such a meeting forum has been acutely felt by scholars, especially younger scholars in need of mentorship and support in the early career stage. The SANR annual meeting is also an important venue for building future frameworks of cooperation, for exploring potential research collaborations, and for presenting cutting edge research undertaken by Nordic scholars.

The two-day programme will consist of the following:

  • Keynote talk by Knut Jacobsen (University of Bergen)
  • Panel discussion on ‘Ache din? India towards the 2019 elections’
  • Theme session on ‘Fieldwork in a volatile region’
  • Roundtable on ‘Teaching and studying South Asia in the Nordic region’
  • Conventional paper presentations

We will set aside ample time for mingling, networking and informal discussions between the sessions.

If wish to submit an abstract, register for the meeting, or contribute to any of the activities outlined above please send an email to Ingvild B. Valen-Sendstad:

We will update the programme on this site as the date approaches.

The event is funded by the Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages at the University of Oslo, and supported by Asianettverket/The Norwegian Network for Asian Studies. Travel and accommodation costs are borne by participants while the host provides local hospitality. There is no conference fee.

Time: 5 June (from 11:45 am) and 6 June (to 2:30 pm)

Place: University of Oslo, Blindern Campus
