Résumé

The Conference aims to provide opportunities for Ph.D. students working on South Asia in the areas of political science and international relations to discuss their research projects and to improve their theoretical and methodological approaches. The broad objectives of the conference are to foster collaboration and the creation of trans disciplinary research projects on South Asia, while discussing a common issue that transcends our area of study: the difficulties of applying theories of predominantly Western origins to a Non-Western context.

Presentation

After the successful organization of our first edition in June 2015, Noria’s South Asia Program is pleased to announce the organization of its second International Graduate Conference on South Asia, on the 8th, 9th and 10th of June 2016. It will be organised in partnership with the Doctoral School of Sciences Po Paris.

The Conference aims to provide opportunities for Ph.D. students working on South Asia in the areas of political science and international relations to discuss their research projects and to improve their theoretical and methodological approaches. The broad objectives of the conference are to foster collaboration and the creation of transdisciplinary research projects on South Asia, while discussing a common issue that transcends our area of study: the difficulties of applying theories of predominantly Western origins to a Non-Western context.

The conference will be hosted and funded by Sciences Po Paris. It will begin on the 8th, at 6.00pm with a welcoming cocktail. The 9th and 10th will consist of three to four panels, with two to three Ph.D. students each, organized according to topics, theories and methods used. Each student will present her/his paper which will then be discussed by a senior researcher and the other participants. One hour will be devoted to each paper, to allow for in-depth discussions.

The host institution will provide accommodation and meals during the time of the conference. As for travel expenses, they will have to be covered by participants and their respective Universities. In order to promote academic exchanges with students from India, one seat will be reserved for a Ph.D. student from an Indian University. We are in the process of securing funds to cover travel expenses but also encourage shortlisted candidates to get in touch with the ICSSR and the UGC for funding opportunities.
