SASNET collaboration with EASAS Doctoral Workshop
At the EASAS workshop, 15 doctoral students from EASAS partner universities had the opportunity to present a text from their dissertation and receive in-depth feedback from senior scholars and peers. SASNET also funded the expenses of Phu Doma Lama, one of the doctoral students selected to participate in the workshop.
This year’s doctoral students were Amogh Dhar Sharma, Phu Doma Lama, Adil Hossain, Daniela Cappello, Kankana Talukda, Aditya Ramesh, Pär Fredborn Larsson, Darshan Karki, Simon Rastén, Anisha Thomas, Radha Kapuria, Ada Dyndo, James Bradbury, Sandhya Fuchs, and Gopika Jadeja.
The scholars who acted as discussants were Alessandra Consolaro (University of Turin), Stefania Cavaliere (Universitá Orientale di Napoli), Martin Fuchs (University of Erfurt), Georg Berkemer (Humboldt University Berlin), Ann-Sophie Bentz (University of Paris-Diderot), and Maria Tonini.
While the common theme of the EASAS workshop is a focus on South Asia, presenters came from diverse fields such as anthropology, literature, history, cultural geography to name a few. The workshop thus created the possibility for doctoral students to receive constructive comments in an inter-disciplinary atmosphere, exchange perspectives, and build meaningful networks.
