    Inaugural SASAA Workshop  ‘Encounters Within and Across South Asia’ 13th & 14th July 2017, University of New South Wales

    SASAA would like to congratulate Dr Tanya Jakimow and Prof. Ramaswami Harindranath for the excellent and stimulating ‘Encounters within and Across South Asia’ workshop held at UNSW in July. Through five dynamic inter-disciplinary panels, twenty scholars explored questions about the environment, law, governance, development and social change in South Asia. These papers stimulated conversation on topics as diverse as trans-national water treaties and the collection of waste human hair. As part of this workshop, early career researches and PhD students were treated to a choice of masterclasses with esteemed visiting Professors: Purnima Mankekar (UCLA) and Ashutosh Varshney (Brown University). Professor Varshney and Professor Mankekar also both delivered  public lectures, respectively exploring Indian democracy, and affective sovereignties. The workshop was crowned by a key note lecture by Professor Akhil Gupta (UCLA) on ‘Changing Forms of Corruption in India.’
