The Institute of Asia and Pacific Studies and the School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies at the University of Nottingham invites paper submissions for a one-day multidisciplinary conference.
Marking the 70th anniversary of India’s independence, the conference seeks to engage with the events of 1947 in their historic moment and themultiple afterlives of Indian independence as a concept in fields ranging from history andpolitics to literature, film, music, and performance studies.
We are especially interested in submissions that conceive of India’s independence beyond national boundaries and contexts, or explore the globalized connections of 1947 and its aftermath across disciplinary, geopolitical and linguistic landscapes.
Examples of possible topics include, but are not limited to:
250-word abstracts and a one-page CV should be submitted by 1 July, 2017 to:
