Himalayan Connections: Disciplines, Geographies, Trajectories
An interdisciplinary workshop at Yale University
March 9-10, 2013
Workshop report and video proceedings are now available HERE.
This workshop aims to interrogate the notion of Himalayan Studies writ large, foregrounding connections between academic disciplines, local geographies, and trajectories of study over time. Our collective considerations will highlight links across the landscapes of Himalayan research while considering the often-contested nature of “Himalaya” as an analytical category. We hope this attention to the diverse interests that comprise contemporary Himalayan Studies will lead to new insights and collaborative research platforms.
