Conference on Modalities of Displacement in South Asia

7-8 June 2018 in Leiden, Netherlands

In June 2018 Leiden University will host a two day conference - Modalities of Displacement - that will discuss 'displacement' in its multiple vectors and possibilities. The conference is jointly organized by the Leiden Institute for Area Studies (LIAS), the Anthropology Department, and the International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS) at Leiden University, the Netherlands, on June 7-8, 2018.

This two-day conference is organised in the context of the projects Postcolonial Displacements: Migration, Narratives and Place-Making in South Asia (LIAS/CA-DS) and Rerouting Relations(IIAS) at Leiden University. They particularly welcome submissions that address perspectives from urban peripheries, rural hinterlands, borderlands, transnational contexts, and the margins of national imaginations. Apart from a select set of panels dedicated to the modalities of displacement, they will also host a workshop (upon invitation) on residential segregation and religious politics. Furthermore they invite presentations based on audio-visual materials, such as films or art works.

Deadline for submissions: 22 January, 2018
