8th Annual Sinhala Studies Symposium (සිංහල අධ්‍යයන සැසිය) – 17th Oct.

The 8th Annual Sinhala Studies Symposium organized by the Department of Sinhala, University of Colombo, was held on 17th October 2018 from 9.00 am  6.00 pm at the Department of Sinhala.

This year, the conference theme was “Sinhala Studies at Crossroads” and the event was extended through following sub-themes enabling a participation of wide range of scholars from both academic and non-academic research contexts across number of subject disciplines.

The conference accepted research proposals from socio-anthropological studies, political sciences, and other related study disciplines of humanities and social sciences.​ Thus, our goal was to explore ways in which Sinhala Studies overlap across other disciplines.
