Call For Papers – Economic and Social History Society of Scotland Conference
'Scotland and the Indian subcontinent'
Wednesday 21 March 2012, Glasgow
The aim of this conference is to explore historical connections between
Scotland and the Indian subcontinent, involving its entire geographical
scope including the likes of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Ceylon, India and
Pakistan. We are interested in both colonial and postcolonial input and
themes might include, but are not limited to, cultural exchange, health
and medicine, trade, industry, religion, conflict/cooperation, migration
(both directions), gender, British East India Company, identity and
subaltern responses. The key to proposals should be the interface
between Scotland and the Indian subcontinent and its peoples.
Abstracts of no more than 300 words are invited. Responses to the first
Call for papers should be submitted no later than 23 January 2012 and
can be sent by email Dr Iain Hutchison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
