Conferences/Call For Papers

  • Call For Manuscripts - South Asia Across the Disciplines
    Jointly published by the University Presses at California, Chicago, and Columbia.

  • Columbia Undergraduate Journal of South Asian Studies
    The Columbia Undergraduate Journal of South Asian Studies (CUJSAS) is a web-only academic journal based out of Columbia University. The journal is a space for undergraduates all over the world to publish their original research on South Asia (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka) from both the social sciences and humanities.

    CUJSAS is looking for editorial board members and submissions for its Fall 2010 issue. The journal has been created by undergraduates for undergraduates, and so the selection process is administered by an editorial board comprised of Columbia students. We are currently looking for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors (at any of Columbia's undergraduate schools) interested in being editors for the Journal. Applicants should enjoy working with peers, have some experience with publication or in a previous editorial capacity, and have a demonstrable interest in the study of South Asia. Applications can be found at

    CUJSAS is currently accepting submissions for Volume II, Issue I. We accept undergraduate theses, research papers, seminar papers, and essays relating to the study of South Asia from any academic discipline. However, it is preferred that papers that solely deal with quantitative analysis are not submitted. There is no ideal page range, though generally submissions between 15 and 40 pages are preferred. Your submission will not be disqualified if it is under 15 or over 40 pages. Recent graduates are encouraged to apply, as long as they attained their undergraduate degree during the 2009-2010 academic year. Fall 2010 ubmissions are due by October 17th at 5 PM.

  • Call for papers - India Review (Taylor & Francis) actively seeks submissions for its upcoming 2011 issues.
    Historically, India Review has published mainly social science research on Indian politics, international affairs, economics, and society. We are especially interested in submissions that address big issues and would have a readership across disciplines among India scholars, that is, submissions that are not too narrow and subfield specific unless they have wider implications despite this. The editorial board at India Review also seeks to publish papers that address issues from disciplines in the Human Sciences, including questions and issues pertaining to religious and cultural history, discourse, and practice in India as they relate to and affect contemporary Indian society at both the regional and national levels. Articles that will be considered for publication will combine theoretical rigor with substantive data. All articles are referred. Please direct all enquiries to India Review's Managing Editor, Anthony Cerulli -
