2nd International Conference on Sindh Studies
“Indus Valley Cultural Heritage: New Researches and Perspectives”
Organized by: Institute of Sindhology, University of Sindh, Jamshoro
Dates: 19-21 November 2018
 
Cultural Heritage is an emerging interdisciplinary field of study, and its inquiry has increasingly been recognized as an important arena by scholars, practitioners, and institutions. The scholarship recognizes that cultural heritage – in its many different forms and alternative expressions – constitutes an influential force in the socio-cultural and political, economic and religious dynamics of state and society. In academic and policy narratives, cultural heritage is now getting a great deal of attention worldwide. In recent years, the new theoretical and methodological approaches have helped to introduce and reshape the diverse scholarly narratives, policy and activist practices in the emerging
interdisciplinary field of critical heritage studies.

Paris, France

ECSAS will celebrate its 25th edition in Paris, hosted at the EHESS (École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales—School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences). The main institutional organizer is the CEIAS (Centre d’Études de l’Inde et de l’Asie du Sud—Center for South Asian Studies, UMR 8564 CNRS/EHESS), which is the largest French research institute in the social sciences dealing with the Indian subcontinent. Created in the mid-1950s by Louis Dumont, the Center’s original aim was to renew the study of South Asia by combining social science-based methods and findings with those of classical Indology.
