AIIS dissertation to book workshop in October 2011 - Register Soon!

Workshop: Transforming your dissertation into a book
Sponsored by the American Institute of Indian Studies
Madison, Oct. 19-20, 2011

Sponsored by the several organizations devoted to the study of South Asia, this workshop aims to help a select number of recent PhDs re-vision their doctoral dissertations as books. Applications to participate are due by June 15, 2011, emailed to Susan S. Wadley, sswadley@syr.edu. Participants must arrange their own transport and stays to Madison, Wisconsin for the Annual Conference on South Asia in October. The workshop will begin at 7:30 pm Wednesday evening, Oct. 19 , and all participants are expected to be present at this time.

For selection: Required is an email containing a current cv; the dissertation abstract, its table of contents, and its first chapter plus a not more than 5 page "book proposal" , as if you were submitting to a press (a three- to six-page description of the project, including its purpose, potential audience, scope, contribution to scholarship, and relations to existing literature, including a vision of the book as different from the dissertation). Email to sswadley@syr.edu by midnight on June 15, 2011.

Susan S. Wadley (Anthropology, Syracuse), Convener, plus other more 'senior' scholars will be present in each concurrent session. Their role is to read the materials prior to the meeting and be prepared to intervene and comment, "in the background" primarily, though with key interventions as needed.

Wednesday evening: 7-9 Introductions plus discussion by one or two recent successful authors of the transformation process.
Thursday morning is divided into half-hour segments for discussion of each project. For each half-hour session, one participant will have been assigned to make a 5 minute presentation of someone else's project--preferably how that individual would revise the dissertation, and the key themes to be emphasized. During the remaining 25 minutes of that session, all of the other participants join in discussing the project -- except the project's author, who is not allowed to speak. The author of the project under discussion can only listen, take notes, even record, how their project is being understood, mis-understood, stretched, queried, and critiqued by knowledgeable peers with closely related interests, but working in varying theoretical perspectives, disciplines, time periods, etc.
On Thursday afternoon/evening, each participant is given an (approx.) 40 minute time slot to respond to the more important queries, issues, and suggestions raised in the morning, and, most important, to seek feedback or further discussion of areas of their projects with which they recognize they are having difficulty.
We may take an hour break for dinner Thursday evening before continuing the final discussions after dinner.
Conversations can carry over into Friday and Saturday at the South Asia Conference!

Information and a request from the American Institute of Indian Studies

I recently attended the annual board meeting of the American Institute of Indian Studies (AIIS) Trustees on behalf of the U of MN, and I write to highlight a few aspects for scholars who work in India

Travel to India for study, research, conferences, etc.:
If you or any of your students are planning to travel to India, make sure that you do so using the correct visa (i.e. student visa, research visa, conference visa, etc.) and not on a tourist visa. Also note that if you enter India on a Tourist Visa and then leave the country, you will not be allowed back until 60 days have passed, with some exceptions. For more details, refer to the websites of the Indian Consulate (http://chicago.indianconsulate.com/) and the Indian Visa Center (https://indiavisa.travisaoutsourcing.com/).

What AIIS can do for faculty and students:

Research fellowships

Language programs
o the academic year language programs are particularly valuable for young scholars and fellowship support is available
Assistance for international learning
o AIIS has a unique capacity to assist with obtaining student visas.,
o AIIS can help undergraduates, scholars and other groups with opportunities for international learning.
o AIIS provides logistical support to Fellows, language students, members of its academic consortium, and to other scholars working in India.
• AIIS supports scholarly research centers in Art & Archaeology and Ethnomusicology, and engages in outreach by sponsoring lectures, exhibitions, and workshops. See the AIIS homepage for more information.

AIIS needs your help:
The AIIS will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2012. As the Institute embarks on its next 50 years, it seeks to sustain the high quality of its programs while supporting the growth of research, teaching, and learning about India. In the current fiscal environment, this requires building the Institute's support base. AIIS is seeking $6,000,000 in new philanthropic support, principally to serve as endowments for fellowships.
• Please give if you can, and/or suggest potential donors
• To learn more about the funding needs and priorities of AIIS as well as ways to give, please view The Journey That Matters.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments.
