For this year, we invite presentations that examine indigeneity, which may include many terms, such as ādivāsī, janajāti, vanavāsī, dravida, ādi-dravida, tribal, etc., as a concept and lived experience, in South Asia and among South Asian diasporas. We are interested in bringing together perspectives from a variety of disciplines, regions, historical periods, and arts. We encourage individual papers, panels, storytelling and creative pieces, and art performances. Please see the detailed Call for Papers with themes and questions pertaining to the topic.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
