This TWO DAY workshop is an interdisciplinary meeting that considers the notion of Himalayan Studies writ large, foregrounding connections between academic disciplines, local geographies, and trajectories of study over time.

The keynote panel, from 5:30-7pm on Saturday March 9th in the Luce Hall Auditorium, will bring together in conversation Professor Charles Ramble (Ecole pratique des hautes Etudes, Sorbonne) and Professor James Scott (Yale University) on the theme of High Asian Connections.

The workshop is being organized in conjunction with the Everyday Religion and Sustainable Environments in the Himalaya conference at The New School, which will bring in an additional group of international Himalayan specialists as observer-participants on Saturday. That conference is open to the public (but also requires online registration), and will also be streamed live. Details are available at: http://indiachinainstitute.org/ai1ec_event/everyday-religion-and-sustainable-environments-in-the-himalaya/?instance_id=29409

Concurrent with these events is a small exhibit showcasing Yale’s rich Himalayan holdings, open to the public in the Memorabilia Room of Sterling Memorial Library. More information is available here: http://himalaya.yale.edu/exhibits
