Relocating Cultural Linkages in South Asia:A Historical Perspective
A conference from 18th to 20th October 2014 in Patiala aims to bring together historians, academicians and research scholars working in the countries of South Asia viz. India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Maldives, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and Myanmar to cover the gap in South Asian historical studies.
South Asia includes some of the most ancient countries that have made a unique contribution to world culture. Peoples of South Asia belong to different races,  practise  different  religions,  speak  different  languages  and  yet  share  a  common civilizational heritage which Arnold Toynbee calls as ‘ Indic’.No country of South Asia can comprehend its own culture adequately without taking into cognisance the cultural traditions of the region as a whole. 

The aim of the conference is to historically examine the multi-centricity of the South Asian culture and demonstrate the commonness, inner dynamics and nature and extent of interaction amongst the countries of South Asia during different phases of history.
