ANN: Hindi-Urdu Advanced Language Workshop

 

Hindi-Urdu advanced language training workshop for language teachers and PGR students/advanced researchers

 

Organised by the Exeter South Asia Centre, and led with Syed Akbar Hyder, Director of the UTA's Hindi-Urdu Flagship programme.

14 -18 August 2017, 10-4 pm
Free

The principal aim of the workshop is to train potential teachers of Exeter Foreign Language Centre’s new Hindi-Urdu programme, which will begin in October 2017, subject to sufficient enrolment. We are aiming to develop a curriculum capable of teaching Hindi and Urdu together, that is, one language in two scripts. This is unique in the UK, but successfully trialled in the USA, most eminently by UTA's Hindi-Urdu Flagship programme. As such, teachers of both or either language are very welcome to attend the workshop, which will include multiple sessions dedicated to developing teaching materials - text, videos, audio material, customised lesson plans, assessment tools and also mock teaching sessions. A range of classroom situations and student demographics will be taken into consideration, ranging from weekend classes for children in the community to university students. Actual sessions will depend on the stated interests of the participants, subject to the overall aims of the workshop.

CfP: Modes of Authority and Aesthetic Practices from South to Southeast Asia

Deadline: 30 September 2017

The French program Autoritas, a project funded by PSL (Paris Sciences & Lettres University), is focused on the study of the relationship between modes of authority and aesthetic practices from South Asia to Southeast Asia.

The project is conducted jointly by four French research units: The CASE (Center for Southeast Asian Studies), the CEIAS (Center for South Asian Studies), the LAS (Social Anthropology Laboratory) and the GSRL (Societies, Religions & Secularities Group). By opening a dialogue among historians, art historians, epigraphists and archaeologists on the one hand, and anthropologists and ethnomusicologists on the other, the EHESS, the EFEO, the Collège de France and the EPHE pool their resources to bring together research results coming from a multidisciplinary approach aimed at examining the relationship between the aesthetic phenomenon and authority.

The conference intends to think comparatively about the relationship between aesthetic phenomena and authority in a region, South and Southeast Asia, where the aesthetic dimension plays a particularly important role in the legitimation strategies of different types of authority, be they religious, political or artistic, and where the diversity of societies range from stateless communities to kingdoms and sultanates via various models of states.

Deadline for the submission of abstracts : September 30, 2017

Conference date : May 23-25, 2018

Conference venue : Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris
