What’s On

Cambridge South Asia Online

The Centre of South Asian Studies Seminar will be migrating online to Zoom in the new term. We will be welcoming an exciting line up of scholars to debate some key themes in the field. Each speaker will relate their work to the theme in view for 20 mins, followed by plenty of time for questions. These conversations will occur online at 14:00 (UK time – please note the change to GMT in November) unless specifically noted below. This is to allow as much latitude as possible to students and scholars far and wide to join us.

The content of the presentations will be made available on this page shortly after the seminar, as well as on the Centre’s podcast series ‘South Asia Conversations’, to which you can subscribe at your regular podcast supplier.
