Thirteenth Annual Humanities and Social Sciences Conference

The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences (in collaboration with the Shahid Hussain Foundation and the Mahbub Ul Haq Research Centre at LUMS) would like to invite you to the Thirteenth Annual Humanities and Social Sciences Conference: “Critical Interventions: Mapping Emerging Scholarship on South Asia”.

The conference will be held at LUMS on 10th and 11th April, 2019.

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 decolonize the academy, thereby highlighting the need for epistemic disruption that foregrounds and legitimizes 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.
