Description:
Las Bela remains understudied, despite its pivotal location between Iran, Kalat, and Sindh, and Bela’s role as the capital city of a state, which not long ago encompassed Karachi. The recent opening of this region provides a unique opportunity to make academic forays into Bela.

This workshop seeks to expand inter-disciplinary horizons, with the aim of designing a cross-departmental course where students can participate and design various aspects of a field-based study.

The roundtable / workshop will be focused on the sacred and historical geography of Bela town, in the Las Bela district of Baluchistan. Las Bela remains understudied, despite its pivotal location between Iran, Kalat, and Sindh, and Bela’s role as the capital city of a state which not long ago encompassed Karachi. The recent opening of this region provides a unique opportunity to make academic forays into Bela. The conference will bring together participants from an array of disciplines – history, anthropology, design, architecture, urban planning, history of art, religious studies, and archaeology – to explore novel approaches to mapping the sacred and historical geography of the town and its immediate environs. The workshop seeks to expand inter-disciplinary horizons, with the aim of designing a cross-departmental course (to be offered in Fall 2018) where students can participate and design various aspects of an inter-disciplinary field based study.

The roundtable / workshop will be a half day event, with two panels, followed by a breakout session. The breakout session will be practically oriented towards creating a course which brings together Habib University and Las Bela University students. In the breakout session, participants will be divided into three groups, each of which will consider options for designing such a course. Each group will also consider how to create a feasible end product, whether a publication or other medium.
