Call for Papers for the 14th Nepal Study Days
14-15th April 2016
Hosted by Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool, UK
The Britain Nepal Academic Council (BNAC) invites scholars and practitioners from all disciplines and at all stages to participate in the 14th BNAC Nepal Study Days. All presentations should focus on Nepal, its diaspora and/or the Nepali cultural world. We invite presentations that share research findings: these should be of work that has reached an advanced stage or has been completed.
Details of previous study days can be accessed online at www.bnac.ac.uk/activities-category/nepal-study-days/
If you are interested in participating, please send a 300-word abstract of your proposed presentation to [email protected] by 28th February 2016. The Study Days organizing committee will review the proposals received within this deadline and make a selection. Selected abstracts will be circulated to registered participants in advance and posted to BNAC website.
Members of BNAC may attend the Nepal Study Days for free, though we will ask for a contribution towards the costs of the lunches. For non-members there will be a registration fee of £25, which will include lunch on both days.
We would like to encourage prospective participants to apply for or renew their membership for 2016 in time to be eligible for free registration. To download membership application form and for other details about BNAC membership, please visit www.bnac.ac.uk/membership/.
We hope to be in a position to offer small bursaries towards the travel costs of students from outside Liverpool whose abstracts are accepted.
