CFP: The 20th Pakistan Workshop 2006: Reflections and Directions

The anthropological and sociological themes have a long history within the
Pakistan Studies Group; but we also welcome researchers from other branches
of the social sciences and humanities. In particular we welcome historians,
political scientists, economists and applied social scientists with
experience working with Pakistani diaspora. The Pakistan Workshop is
intentionally kept small and intimate. (Normally there will be 25 or fewer
participants). In the past it has always provided new scholars (including
postgraduate students) and established scholars the opportunity to get to
know one another beyond the exchange of scholarly comment on papers.

The venue, the Rook How, is one of the oldest Quaker Meeting Houses in
Britain and is an important location in the Quaker world. The Rook How
offers dormitory style sleeping arrangements which are comfortable and
affordable. For those who prefer B&B accommodation, there are several nice
B&Bs in the area, though a car is necessary for them. The total cost of the
Workshop will be about £65-70 for those staying at the Rook How (this
includes Workshop registration, reception, breakfasts, Pakistani lunches,
teas and coffees). Registrations are limited, therefore early registration
is recommended.
