Call for Papers

Bangladesh Studies across disciplines

June 4 and 5, 2020

The Bangladesh Studies Network brings together people studying Bangladesh. While there are a lot of research activities on Bangladesh in various disciplines, these are often only interconnected by chance or personal networks. They are hardly visible to the outside, with Bangladesh remaining, particularly in the social sciences and humanities, an appendix to South Asian studies, which focus on India, and, to a lesser degree, Pakistan. By creating a forum for perceiving interconnections and providing visibility, this conference contributes to strengthening Bangladesh Studies as a field and to eliminating blind spots within Bangladesh studies.

We invite everyone who would like to present their work at the conference to send us a title and short abstract by 30 April, 2020. Please also let us know if you would like to chair a session or be a discussant. As we need to know the number of attendees for catering purposes, please let us know if you are planning to attend by 30 April.

Kindly send your abstract, registration and queries to

Information on logistics and accommodation in Heidelberg will follow.
