The 2017 Sri Lanka Graduate Conference will be held on October 13-14 at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Hosted for the first time by Cornell’s South Asia Program, the conference is co-sponsored by the American Institute for Sri Lanka Studies. As in years prior, this workshop will bring together graduate students in both the final writing-up stage and pre-research/planning stages from a variety of disciplines and institutions.The graduate conference aims to enhance intellectual exchange on Sri Lanka, emphasize the production of empirical and non-sectarian knowledge, focus attention on recent potential transformation of key concepts, build a new cohort of researchers (and research) across disciplines and institutions, and strengthen relationships between American graduate students and local intellectual circles in Sri Lanka. We invite students from all disciplines to participate.
