The Asia Research Institute at the National University of Singapore invites
papers for the conference Beyond Bedouin and Bania: Arabia-South Asia
Relations. This is the 4th Muhammad Alagil Arabia Asia Conference.
By dint of proximity and other reasons, Arabia and South Asia are
neighbouring regions which have been involved in each other’s affairs for
centuries. While their relations are not always the most visible, peoples
from the two regions enjoy a degree of familiarity and mutual knowledge
that defies conventional notions of cultural and religious difference.
This conference will explore and map the range of relations between Arabia
and South Asia in the present and the past through a number of topics such
as those below. Proposals are welcome for these topics as well as others.
Joint proposals for panels of 3-4 presenters are welcome as well; please
provide panel title, respective paper titles and abstracts.
In this conference, we seek to gain a better understanding of the following
Cities and Networks
Creole Scripts and Songs
Mercenaries and Militaries
Legal Platforms (e.g. Islamic, English)
Princely States/Monarchies/Indirect Rule
Empire in the Gulf

Submissions should include a title, an abstract of no more than 300 words
and a brief biography including current affiliation, research interests,
and publications. Please note that only previously unpublished papers or

conference. By participating in the conference, you agree to participate in
the future publication plans (special issue/journal) of the organisers.
