16 March 2020 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 philip.murphy@sas.ac.uk by  Friday 
17 January 2020.
