THE Association for nepal
and himalayan studies

Celebrating 50 Years of Scholarship and Networking

The Association for Nepal and Himalayan Studies (ANHS) is pleased to announce that the Himalayan Studies Conference 6 (HSC6) will be held at the University of Toronto, on the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca and the Mississaugas of the Credit, from October 13–16, 2022.

The conference will be organized and hosted by the University of Toronto on behalf of the Association for Nepal and Himalayan Studies (ANHS). 

Please note that you must be an active member of ANHS to be eligible to participate at the conference.


The logo of the Himalayan Studies Conference creatively synthesizes North American Indigenous forms of knowledge and worldviews, represented by the turtle as a creator and symbol of life itself, and Buddhist principles of peace, harmony and compassion depicted by a stupa. The CN tower, also called Canadian National Tower, is a broadcast and telecommunication tower in Toronto and a widely recognized landmark of the city. Drawing attention to the environment, land and people, the logo is life-affirming and symbolizes openness and becoming.
