The 11th Annual Meeting of the Arbeitskreis Südasien of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Geographie (DGfG) takes place on 7 and 8 May, 2021 at the Institute of Geography, Georg-August-University, Göttingen. The annual meeting will be organised by the Section of Human Geography.
The annual meeting is aiming to discuss current research results, approaches, and projects of various parts of South Asian geography. It will serve as a platform for intradisciplinary and interdisciplinary exchange about current developments in the diverse and rapidly changing region of South Asia. The event is addressing scholars as well as interns and teachers, whose focus of work and interest lies in South Asia. Representatives of Physical Geography are as warmly invited as representatives of Human Geography or interested persons from neighbouring disciplines. Due to the current restrictions in fieldwork abroad, we also explicitly welcome papers with initial conceptual ideas without empirical data basis.
Please send abstracts with a maximum of 400 words to Ms. Lena Nieweler (email@example.com) by 19 February, 2021. The annual meeting’s lingua franca is English, however, papers can as well be presented in German.
The meeting is being planned as an in-person meeting. Nevertheless, we reserve the right to conduct the meeting online, in that case reduced to one day, depending on the epidemiological situation in April.
It is possible for paper contents to be published in the form of an extended abstract in the conference proceedings. This will be published in the series of papers of the Arbeitskreis (http://crossasia-books.ub.uni-heidelberg.de/xasia/catalog/series/gsa). The meeting’s programme will be published on the website of the Arbeitskreis (www.geographien-suedasiens.de) as well as in the Rundbrief Geographie in April.
