South Asia Work in Progress (SAWIP) Roundtable for Scholars of South Asia
'Caste and its diasporic avatars'
South Asia Work in Progress (SAWIP) is an interdisciplinary forum for scholars of South Asia to present their ‘works in progress’ in a small-group setting. It forms part of the activities of Wolfson’s South Asia Research Cluster and is convened in partnership with the Contemporary South Asian Studies Programme.
As a forum, SAWIP offers a friendly verbal peer-review environment for the presentation and discussion of journal articles, book proposals, research projects and any other kind of research undertaking, at all stages of production from ‘sketchy’ to ‘close to press’.
It aims to unite scholars from a range of disciplinary backgrounds and provide a space to explore both the craft of research and ways of approaching scholarship on South Asia.
