Call for Papers (Abstract submission by: 10. September 2012)
The 16th Colloquium of the International Association for Ladakh Studies (IALS) will take place at the Department of Geography, South Asia Institute, Heidelberg University, Germany, from 17-20. April 2013. Under the overarching topic "Society and Environment in Ladakh: Historical Perspectives and Recent Dynamics", senior scientists, young researchers and practitioners are invited to discuss different topics related to Ladakh and its neighbouring mountain regions.
Following the tradition of the IALS, the conference has an explicitly interdisciplinary character. We therefore encourage participants from different scientific fields to submit an abstract.
Possible focus areas for individual sessions include:
- Political and religious history
- Cultural and social change
- Rural livelihoods and economic change
- Heritage and conservation
- Health and nutrition
- Climate change and adaptation
- Development interventions
Additional information on registration, travel grants, updates on field trips, accommodation, and the conference programme will be posted on the Conference pages of the IALS website as details are finalised.
Any queries should be directed to Conference Convenor
