STIMW was first convened by Dr Dermot Killingley at the University of Newcastle in 1984. Since then, under his able leadership and that of Dr Will Sweetman, STIMW has offered a forum for the discussion of many aspects of Indian religions. Over the past two decades, papers have been presented by leading scholars in the field as well as by research students in the University of Newcastle and elsewhere. We hope that STIMW's new location in Manchester, with its growing programmes in South Asian Studies and Centre for Applied South Asian Studies, will encourage participants old and new to support this friendly symposium.
