Research Seminar Series held at SSB

Four partnership members presented at a series of research seminars that were hosted by Social Science Baha at their Kathmandu library in July and August 2018. Each seminar featured one partnership member presenting about an aspect of their work relevant to the project themes. Each presenter circulated an existing or upcoming publication in advance, and was allotted 90 minutes for their presentation and Q&A. The diverse audience was comprised of Social Science Baha researchers, Canadian students, and other scholars and students from Nepali institutions such as Tribhuvan University, leading to lively and productive seminars.
