CAPS SACPAN Jeremiah-Riaz Poster

The University of Oregon will host the South Asia Conference of the Pacific Northwest (SACPAN) on February 5-6, 2016 at the UO White Stag Building in Portland, Oregon.

Following on the successes of previous SACPAN meetings, we invite faculty and graduate students from UW, UBC, UO, Portland State University, Oregon State University, Reed College, Lewis and Clark and area institutions to informally outline on-going, evolving, and new research on South Asia and its diasporas. We have two types of presentation formats; individual presenters and organized panels. Each presenter will get 15 minutes to present their research. Organized panels will be in a roundtable format that leaves more time for discussion of critical issues.

  • Each session will have 15 minutes dedicated to comments from the audience
  • For organized panels, panel chairs may include a discussant as part of the panel
  • Individual paper presenters will be grouped thematically
  • Each session will run for 1 hour and 45 minutes
  • We encourage lively collegial critique and feedback
