CfP: Workshop on Borders and Regionalism in South Asia by South Asian University, Delhi [August 25]: Submit by July 17: Expired

Concept Note

South  Asia  is  regarded  as  one  of  the  least  integrated  regions  of  the  world.  This  is  despite  the fact  that  the  region  shares  a  common  history,  culture  and  developmental  challenges.    Indeed, some  hard  borders  and  boundaries  act  as  hurdles  for  regional  integration  in  South  Asia.

Contrary  to  this  dominant  representation  of  the  region,  other  realities  are  quite  often  ignored. One  such  important  aspect  is  the  socio-cultural  and  historical  ties  that  exist  among  the  people of  the  region.

Thus,  while  acknowledging  the  official  borders,  we  can  also  see  that  there  are prospects  for  progress.  The  commonality  between  the  people  opens  the  possibilities  for  soft regionalism  and  in  a  way,  could  lead  to  regional  integration  in  South  Asia.

This  one  day workshop  invites  papers  from  young  scholars  to  discuss  the  possibilities  of  regional integration  in  South  Asia  by  bridging  the  existing  borders  and  boundaries.

We  encourage the  young  faculty  members  and  doctoral  students  to  submit  abstracts  on  themes  related to borders and  regionalism  in  South Asia.
