Sociology of South Asia: Postcolonial Legacies, Global Imaginaries

Symposium on South Asia

Research on South Asia remains marginalized within U.S. sociology. At this symposium, we explore how South Asia offers a uniquely generative site from which to rethink sociological practice. How can it build on a rich transnational intellectual legacy? How can it further efforts to decolonize the discipline? How can the sociology of South Asia be more liberatory, ethical, critical, and reflexive, and how can sociologists of South Asia better support one another?
