UPDATE: The Deadline for the Emerging Scholars Symposiums for India and China have been extended to September 30, 2014. See below for links for updated applications.
The India China Institute at The New School, in collaboration with our partners in India and China invites the submission of papers for the Fourth Interdisciplinary Symposium for Emerging Scholars on India China Studies. The symposium will be held at the following locations and dates:
China: Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China December 12-13, 2014
India: Panjab University, Chandigarh, India December 19-20, 2014
United States: The New School, New York City, New York, April 13-14, 2015
This unique initiative is designed to provide a platform for researchers pursuing an advanced degree (MPhil/PhD), and young scholars who received their PhDs within the last 5 years, to present their ongoing research. Advanced Master’s degree students from professional fields such as law, design, and architecture are also welcome to apply. We look forward to creative interventions from any discipline, methodology, or combination thereof that address any aspect of China or India’s economic, social, cultural, and political development. Papers with a strong analytical focus on India-China interactions, comparisons, and impact will be given preference. Only papers not previously published will be accepted.
The symposium is a part of ICI’s continuing commitment to build a community of scholars who are engaged in research that focuses on innovative approaches to understanding India China relations. For nine years ICI has provided a space for the establishment and strengthening of scholarly networks for emerging scholars of India and China who wish to share their research and explore opportunities for advancing individual and collaborative scholarship. The emerging scholars program also draws on The New School’s tradition of fostering horizontal and vertical knowledge sharing across disciplines and amongst scholars in different stages of their careers.
This symposium consists of three separate events. The first event will be held on in China for emerging Chinese scholars conducting research on India, and the second will be held in India for Indian scholars conducting research on China. Top Indian and Chinese scholars will be invited to join US-based scholars in a special international symposium at The New School in the spring of 2015.
Symposium presenters will also be invited to submit their papers for a standard blind peer review for publication in the India China Working Paper Series.
