Sri Lanka Graduate Student Conference

13-14 October 2017 in Ithaca, USA

The 2017 Sri Lanka Graduate Conference will be held on October 13-14 at Cornell University in Ithaca, USA. The conference theme is “Sri Lanka: Critical Reflections on Legacies of Authority and Difference.” Submit proposals before August 28, 2017.

Conceiving of “Authority” and “Difference” in their broadest senses, the organizers hope the conference theme will prompt consideration of, among other things, the ways in which structures of political, social, and economic power engender or condition difference in Sri Lanka.

As in years prior, this workshop will bring together graduate students in both the final writing-up stage and pre-research/planning stages from a variety of disciplines and institutions. The graduate conference aims to enhance intellectual exchange on Sri Lanka, emphasize the production of empirical and non-sectarian knowledge, focus attention on recent potential transformation of key concepts, build a new cohort of researchers (and research) across disciplines and institutions, and strengthen relationships between American graduate students and local intellectual circles in Sri Lanka. The organizers invite students from all disciplines to participate.
