The Contemporary South Asia Programme in The School of Interdisciplinary Area Studies (SIAS) are looking for four students from Oxford University who would like to visit Lahore for one week in late March 2018. The trip is fully funded, so will include flights, accommodation, entertainment, tours of Lahore and will enable Oxford students to interact with staff and students at the Lahore School of Economics, attend the Annual Economics Conference on the 28th-29th March, and depending on your research interests, present a seminar.
A link to the write up from students who attended last year can be found here
We are opening this to students with a very general background in the social sciences who are currently researching an area of potential interest to the staff and students of the Lahore School or whose future research plans may turn in some way to include Pakistan.
If you would like to chat with past and present Oxford students who have done this trip in the past you may like to contact
Shannon Philip (International Development) email@example.com
Indrajit Roy (International Development) firstname.lastname@example.org
Karan Nagpal (Economics) email@example.com
Yuge Ma (Geography) Yuge.firstname.lastname@example.org
Preference will be given to students who would not otherwise get the opportunity to visit Pakistan and for those students (MPhil or DPhil) who have already undertaken a body of original research. Students holding Indian passports are more than welcome to apply.
Please do forward to anyone who may be interested in applying.
If you are interested or have further questions please send your cv and a 400-500 word outline of your research interests by 17th February 2018 to Matthew.McCartney@area.ox.ac.uk
