2nd Annual NHRN Conference: “Rethinking the Himalayas”

University of Copenhagen, May 9th, 2019

The Nordic Himalaya Research Network (NHRN) Conference is an event for researchers in the Nordic region and beyond who work on all aspects of research related to the Himalaya region, spanning India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. The conference offers a platform for scholars of the Himalayas to present their research and meet other researchers, and it is particularly intended to be a supportive meeting point for emerging scholars.

The NHRN conference runs for a full day on Thursday, May 9th at University of Copenhagen and will be organized so as to accommodate as many participants as possible. We especially encourage graduate students to attend and present their work.
