How to present South Asia (to those who know it and those who wish to)
Skills development session for PGR and ECR scholars working on South Asia
South Asia is often seen as a bewildering place by those who are new to the region. Not only does the region boast a super abundance of languages, ecologies, religions, cuisines and arts, but also an excess of seemingly endless entanglements and conflicts. It is a learned skill to present specialist knowledge on this region to a non-specialist audience in a comprehensible and interesting way. It is also a skill that postgraduate researchers and early career scholars must acquire in order to present their research to a wider audience, interview for jobs and convince publishers to commission their books. In this session, two professors of South Asian studies with complementary expertise, will facilitate dialogue between PGR students and ECR scholars working on South Asia, and offer insights based on their own experiences. This event will be on Zoom. All are welcome to attend – pre-registration mandatory. Email email@example.com to request a Zoom meeting link.
