I just love the format of the STIMW, i.e., all papers are read in advance and there is plenty of time for discussing them. If you have never experienced it, don’t miss this chance.
31st Annual STIMW Symposium
Fri 23 May 2014 11am-5pm
University of Manchester
STIMW offers a forum for the discussion of papers on varied aspects of Indian religions. Proposals are now being invited for this year’s Symposium. STIMW papers are presented by leading scholars in the field as well as by research students. They are sent to participants in advance, so that they can be read and discussed in detail. They are available to those who cannot attend for a small charge.
Please ensure that your proposal reaches Jackie Hirst (email@example.com) by Fri 28 Feb 2014.
