What’s On

Cambridge South Asia Online

The Centre of South Asian Studies Seminar will be continuing to operate online in the Lent 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) 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. Seminars and events from the Michaelmas Term 2020 remain available on this podcast series.

Please note: For security reasons, we now require all those attending an online event to register in advance. After registration you will receive an email containing a link to the seminar and a passcode. DO NOT pass this email or its contents on to anyone, and do not share it on social media. If you know of someone who would like to attend, point them to this page so that they can register.
