Call for Papers

International Conference
Global Indian Diaspora: Continuities and Changes
6-7 November 2014
University of Hyderabad
The processes of globalization have been undergoing change over time for centuries from silent trade and barter exchange, through international trade and multinational corporations, to a free flow of capital and culture beyond the boundaries of nation-states spanning the globe. The far reaching changes in technologies of transport and communication, that followed the microelectronic revolution, have already impacted immensely on the way people think, work and view the world.
India today is not just a place, space or bounded territory forming a nation-state as it were, but the one for nearly a century long experience of being in Britain, The Netherlands, Trinidad, Guyana, Surinam, Fiji, Malaysia, Uganda, South Africa, USA, Canada and several other nations. It is what India has come to be, as it were dispersed. Under the present regime of globalization, India stretches to all corners of the globe where Indians remain Indians forming Global Indian Diaspora. The proposed International Conference on “Global Indian Diaspora” aims at examining
the continuities and changes in the lives of Indians in the diaspora.
Besides discussing the conceptual issues in the study of Indian diaspora in the contemporary context, the conference shall address various themes such as: issues of identity; transnationalism; and new policy initiatives.
The last date for sending the abstract is 15th August 2014 and the full paper is 15 October 2014.
