Lisbon, 25-28 July
CALL FOR PAPERS
as the deadline is approaching we would like to remind you again of
the panel and screening series that we are organizing for the coming
ECSAS 2012, the 22nd European Conference on South Asian Studies,
Lisbon, 25-28 July.
Aiming to provoke the logic that has characterized conventional
visual gazes upon South Asia we invite papers, films and other forms
of visual essays that are approaching the subcontinent as a place to
"look from" rather than to "look at".
While the papers will be presented within the structure of a regular
panel the films will be shown on the evenings within the framework of
a screening series.
Deadline for paper proposal 27 January, 2012.
The convenors are:
PAOLO FAVERO - Senior Research Associate at the Centre for Research
in Anthropology (CRIA) and Associate Professor at the Lisbon
University Institute; Paolo is also a filmmaker and directs the
post-graduation in Digital Visual Culture. He is the director of the
film "Flyoverdelhi" and author of the book "India Dreams"
GIULIA BATTAGLIA - Teaching Fellow for the Centre for Media and Film
Studies (SOAS, University of London) and PhD Research Fellow in Social
Anthropology (SOAS, University of London); Giulia works on Documentary
Film Practices in India and worked as a filmmaker in collaboration
with film practitioners from India. Along with other academics, she
recently curated the festival/conference Persistence/Resistance:
Documentary Practices in India, London, November 2011.
