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 email@example.com by Friday
17 January 2020.
