Decolonization Workshop, Monday 16 March 2020
Institute of Commonwealth Studies
The Court Room, Senate House, London
Call for papers
We will be running our next Decolonization Workshop here at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies in Senate House, London, on Monday 16 March 2020. The day will run from 11.00am to 6.00pm.
As on previous occasions, we aim to have a series panel discussions over the course of the day. Each panel will consist of three papers lasting for 15-20 minutes. We are particularly appealing for proposals for presentations from research students and early-career researchers, although we welcome the participation of more established scholars. The workshop will provide an informal and supportive forum in which to discuss work in progress.
We invite summary proposals (of no more than 200 words) for papers on subjects linked to the theme of decolonization, along with a brief biographical note. We interpret ‘decolonization’ very broadly, and are happy to consider proposals dealing with a wide range of imperial entities, regions and chronological periods. Although our previous workshops have tended to focus on the political and economic processes of Imperial dissolution and national liberation, we are also interested in work that engages with contemporary debates around cultural and intellectual decolonization, including the decolonization of the curriculum.
Please send titles and brief abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 17 January 2020.
