British Association of South Asian Studies Annual conference


Important Update

We are delighted by the range of papers and panels that we now have in hand for BASAS 2022!  In starting to put together the programme, we have realised that we need to extend the dates of the conference to allow everyone the opportunity to attend the papers that interest them, at a time that is reasonable within their time zone.  The conference will therefore start on the 29th March, and run in the UK morning/South Asia afternoon until 2 Saturday 2 April.
