BASAS Conference 2024 – King’s College London (9-11 September 2024)

We are delighted to announce that the British Association for South Asian Studies Annual Conference 2024 will take place at King’s College London on September 9-11, 2024.

We are pleased to confirm that BASAS will be offering a limited number of bursaries to help with the cost of attending the 2024 conference, in addition to the subsidising of the overall rate.

A limited number of bursaries are available for participants this year, please apply here.


This is a members-only event. Conference registration is a 2-step process; you need to be a member of BASAS first before registering for the conference. You can join BASAS here.

Registration for the conference is now open! You will be able to register once you have joined BASAS – the registration link can be accessed via the Members’ Area (log in to your BASAS account here).

If you choose to attend the conference, the fee is £90.

BASAS seeks to provide events in a mix of formats this year. After careful consideration, we have decided to hold the 2024 conference in person. We are also exploring the possibility of hosting a limited number of online sessions, either during the main conference or at a future follow-up event/s for students registered in universities in South Asia. If you are such a student, to help us gauge demand for this, please indicate on your proposal form if you wish your paper to be considered for an online-only session.

We look forward to welcoming you to KCL!
