Over 440 scholars and students from fields of research related to South Asia attended the 23rd European Conference on South Asian Studies (ECSAS) at the University of Zurich (Switzerland). Learn more about the 51 panels and 368 papers presented.

The ECSAS has met regularly since 1968, and has provided an important opportunity to discuss current research and scholarship on topics relating to South Asia within the humanities and social sciences. The ECSAS conferences now operate under the auspices of the European Association for South Asian Studies (EASAS), a charitable, academic association engaged in the support of research and teaching concerning South Asia with regard to all periods and fields of study.

The hosts for the 23rd ECSAS were the Department of Geography and the University Research Priority Program (URPP) Asia and Europe, both at the University of Zurich.
