We are delighted to announce that Ashoka University is hosting the fifth Association of Asian Studies’ (AAS-in-Asia) conference at the Indian Habitat Center, Delhi on 5-8 July 2018. This conference is intended to be a smaller size conference than the typical AAS annual conference held in North America. It’s an opportunity for scholars working at institutions in Asia to participate on panel sessions and network with colleagues in a local setting.
Prof. James C. Scott, Professor, Yale University will be the keynote speaker for the conference.
The highlights of the conference are two special roundtables:
1. ‘Forgotten Geographies: A Journal of Asian Studies Roundtable’organized by the journal’s editor Jeff Wasserstrom (University of California, Irvine)
2. ‘Forgotten Genealogies: A History and Theory Roundtable’ organized by the journal’s editor William Pinch (Wesleyan University).
The Ashoka Archives of Contemporary India, in collaboration with American Institute of Indian Studies, is also organizing a workshop for South Asian Archivists and Librarians.
