"South Asia and Latin America: Intellectual Junctures and Affinities" -- paper abstracts are invited for a roundtable panel at the 48th Annual NeMLA Convention (March 23-26, 2017, in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.).
While studies of the Global South and South-South connections are of more recent vintage, unconventional intellectual exchanges of this type have long been occurring "off the grid." Specifically, such exchanges were occurring between South Asia and Latin America long before talk of BRICs and 'third world solidarity'. This session examines such intellectual junctures and affinities.
