5TH SOUTH ASIAN HISTORY CONFERENCE,2017 on Women in South Asia: History, Challenges and Potentialities in Punjab University
The aim of the conference is to understand the changes and continuities in the lives of women in South Asia from historical perspective. Using gender as lens of examining the past we will examine how politics of race, class, caste and religion affected and continue to impact women in South Asian countries. We will reflect upon current debates within South Asian women’s history in order to examine some of the issues and problems that arise in rewriting the past from a gendered perspective. The people of South Asia share a unique and civilisational heritage which is its core strength. It has enormous growth potential which cannot be fully tapped without involving women and ensuring their empowerment as an intrinsic and integral part of the process of development.
