South Asia across the Nordic Region (SANR)
The third annual SANR conference was hosted by Sasnet/Lund University, the Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI), Stockholm, and SLU. SANR is an annual conference about all things South Asian.
The conference was held in Ulls hus, Ultuna on 11-12 June. Organiser was the Division of Rural Development, Patrik Oskarsson with co-organisers Andreas Johansson (Sasnet/Lund University), Henrik Chetan Aspengren (UI), Seema Arora-Jonsson (SLU).
Event funding was shared between Sasnet/Lund University, the Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI), Stockholm, and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Uppsala.
The conference offers a platform for Nordic scholars of South Asia to present their research and meet other researchers. It is particularly intended to be a supportive meeting point for emerging scholars. After initial meetings in Copenhagen in 2017 and Oslo in 2018, Uppsala will be the host in 2019 with the event taking place June 11-12 at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. To accommodate as wide an audience as possible we intend to include sessions for MA/PhD project presentations, as well as new initiatives and themed panels.
