Deadline extended-Call for 2018 Junior Scholars Conference!

American Institute of Pakistan Studies (AIPS) is pleased to announce its 2018 Junior Scholars Conference on Pakistan Studies, which will take place as a pre-conference to the 47th Annual Conference on South Asia. The conference will be held on Thursday October 11, 2018 in Madison, Wisconsin. This one-day conference is expected to bring together junior scholars who are based in the social sciences and the humanities, primarily in the US academia (there is no US citizenship requirement). AIPS encourages abstracts from (but not restricted to) disciplines such as anthropology, sociology, political science, history, literature, religious studies, art history, music, women studies, film and communications studies, etc. Graduate Students who are enrolled in a PhD program in a US academic institution and have ABD status, especially those writing their dissertations are encouraged to apply. So are Post-Doctoral candidates who completed their PhD in or after 2015.

Interested and qualifying candidates should submit an abstract (not exceeding 250 words) and a short bio, which mentions their institution, disciplinary background, and, in case of graduate students, a short letter from your supervisor attesting to your ABD status to AIPS at by June 15, 2018.

AIPS has funds to supplement domestic US travel and to provide accommodations for two nights for selected scholars.
