PRG Conference 30 March 2019

Conveners: Pritam Singh, R S Mann

Speakers: TBC

The Punjab Research Group (PRG) is organising a one day conference at St Antony’s College, University of Oxford on March 30, 2019. Punjab Research Group has been hosting conferences at least twice a year since 1984 and was established as an inclusive and all-embracing forum to provide a platform for discussion and debate on issues pertaining to East and West Punjab as well as the Punjabi diaspora. During the past 35 years, the PRG has provided space for academics to interact with each other regardless of territorial or disciplinary boundaries. This is especially important given the often-strained relationship between India and Pakistan, which has prevented discussion and dialogue between scholars of East and West Punjab.

The selected papers for the conference would cover a broad range of issues relating to history, philosophy, politics, gender, religion, environmental studies, economics, diaspora issues, linguistics, literature, poetry, arts, and culture.

The conference is organised by Professor Pritam Singh, Oxford School of Global and Area Studies, University of Oxford who is the Director of PRG, and R S Mann, a PhD student at Oxford Brookes University who is the convenor of the conference. The conference is supported by the Asian Studies Centre and St Antony’s College

All are welcome to attend the conference. The registration fee is £10.
