The Department for the Study of Religion at the University of Toronto is pleased to announce the
Fourth Biennial Graduate Conference on South Asian Religions
October 5th & 6th, 2017
Graduate students engaged in original research from disciplines including, but not limited to, religious studies, women’s and gender studies, philosophy, anthropology, history, linguistics, sociology, area or diasporic studies, political science, and geography are encouraged to apply. As an inherently interdisciplinary conference, we endeavour to stimulate critical and scholastically rigorous conversations across historical periods, methodologies, and subject matter. As such, we encourage submissions from graduate students working on Islam, Sikhism, Jainism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, and Zoroastrianism. Participants will deliver a 20 minute paper before an audience of students and faculty from the University of Toronto.
