The Department for the Study of Religion at the University of Toronto is pleased to announce the

Fifth Biennial Graduate Conference on South Asian Religions

October 3rd & 4th, 2019

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.

The call for papers for 2019 will be circulated at the end of February 2019. For an overview of the 2017 conference, please click here.
