South Asia Conference of the Pacific Northwest (SACPAN) 2014

Saturday, March 8, 2014
The Walker Ames Room, Kane Hall

The South Asia Center at the University of Washington invites you to submit proposals for the South Asia Conference of the Pacific Northwest (SACPAN) 2014, to be held on March 8, 2014 at the University of Washington, Seattle.

This year we invite faculty and graduate students from UW, UBC, and area institutions to informally outline on-going, evolving, or simply dreamed-up new research and writing in a workshop, round-table format. Length of presentation and panel format will vary. The format may encourage collaborative projects, collective planning, and generally getting to know everybody’s personal “cutting edge”. Presenters will be grouped thematically. We will discourage formal papers and encourage lively collegial critique and guidance. Non-presenters will be encouraged to attend and participate in questioning presenters.

If you are interested in informally presenting your current work at SACPAN 2014, please send an abstract of no more than 200 words in the body of an email to Keith Snodgrass at by February 12, 2014. We have a limited amount of space and cannot accept all proposals.

SACPAN will take place on Saturday, March 8 in the Walker Ames Room of Kane Hall on the University of Washington Campus in Seattle.

SACPAN has been sponsored by the University of British Columbia and the University of Washington jointly since the mid-1960s. It was created to foster a strong intellectual connection among South Asia scholars in the Pacific Northwest, and its annual meeting is a time for intensive intellectual exchange and an opportunity to renew our collegial ties. For graduate students, SACPAN offers a unique chance for emerging scholars to interact with area faculty and invited guests in a lively and friendly environment. The SACPAN conference is open to all scholars in any field or professional school whose work involves the study of South Asia.

Questions should be directed to Keith Snodgrass, Associate Director of the South Asia Center, University of Washington, Seattle:
