The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (in collaboration with the Shahid Hussain Foundation and the Mahbub-ul-Haq Research Centre) invites you to the Thirteenth Annual Humanities and Social Sciences Conference: Critical Interventions: Mapping Emerging Scholarship on South Asia.
Date: April 10-11, 2019
Time: 8:30am – 7:15pm
This conference will offer an intervention in the understandings of South Asia as reality and construct. By bringing together work across multiple disciplines from both indigenous and diasporic scholars working on the region, the conference will build upon the movement to decolonise the academy, thereby highlighting the need for epistemic disruption that foregrounds and legitimises emerging perspectives on South Asia.
Showcasing emerging scholarship on the region, this conference will also enable scholars to generate newer critical paradigms to think through the more complex and controversial transformations of contemporary South Asia. In doing so, the conference will generate multidisciplinary knowledge(s) about the region and enable academics to form transnational epistemic networks.
The conference is open to everyone and free to attend. To allow for smooth entry to the LUMS campus, we are requesting that those who wish to attend to register here
