Wolfson College is honoured to host the Oxford Symposium in Sillicon Solar Cell Technology on 15 and 16 April.
South Asia Research Cluster (SARC)
South Asia contains one-fifth of the world’s population and is a key to planetary social development in the twenty-first century.
India is the world’s largest democracy, an economic and nuclear power, and home to dizzying cultural, religious, and linguistic richness that has made it a laboratory for ideas in social science and humanities.
The South Asia Research Cluster at Wolfson is the natural home for the study of South Asia in Oxford, with a wealth of S. Asia scholars and a truly interdisciplinary approach.
SARC’s strong association with the Contemporary South Asian Studies programme sees it host a stream of international conferences, a contemporary South Asian film series, panels and round tables, book readings, debates and lectures from distinguished visiting scholars and figures in public life. From 2014 the college has hosted the Safraz Lecture on Pakistan, and an increasing diversity of activities from around the SARC region – see the annual report for 2014-15.
Graduate-student-led research workshops have been developed and supported by the cluster. Applications for seed funds of up to £750 are welcome before the deadline of January 1 2016. Contact Barbara Harriss-White.
At Wolfson, the many students and researchers from South Asia contribute to larger conversations on research in their home regions, opening up possibilities for intellectual exchange and cooperation.
The SARC Related Publications page provides a list of works relevant to the study of South Asia, some of which are written by SARC members or speakers at SARC events.
Contact Matthew McCartney to have your name added to the circulation list.

Lectures and Seminars27 - 28Apr AprThe Korrigan Consort Presents: Hunger & Judith TriumphsSaturday 27 April - 7:30pm to Sunday 28 April - 9:30pm
The Korrigan Consort is thrilled to present a spring double-bill, featuring Joanna Ward’s Hunger and Antonio Vivaldi’s Judith Triumphs.
Two tales, two women, two troubled souls. One, an artist struggling to form her identity as a creative, a woman, and a mother. One, a noblewoman with the weight of a nation on her shoulders, rebelling against the expectation of women to sacrifice. Both struggle under the thumb of patriarchs and patriarchy, with stories reaching across time.Lectures and Seminars30 - 30Apr AprImagining MadnessTuesday 30 April - 1:30pm to 5:30pm
How has madness been perceived and represented by composers, biographers, medical professionals, and people who have experienced it first-hand? How should we conceptualise madness as scholars? This interdisciplinary colloquium features various speakers, and aims to give researchers who are interested in this subject an opportunity to meet one another, hear about each other’s work, and to discuss the challenges of writing about experiences and perceptions of madness and mental illness.Lectures and Seminars30 - 30Apr AprAsian Treasure Traditions SeminarTuesday 30 April - 5:00pm to 7:00pm
