“Global Southern Epistemologies”


The Department of Comparative Literature of the School of Literary Studies in the English and Foreign Languages University (EFLU) in Hyderabad, India and the School of Languages, Cultures, Art History & Music at the University of Birmingham invite applications for the Global Southern Epistemologies workshop, to take place in Hyderabad, India, from 11 to 14 December 2018 (including arrival and departure). With the support of the British Academy and the Global Challenges Research Fund, the workshop will bring together a team of scholar and editors based in Europe as well as senior academics from South Asia, and Early-Career Researchers (ECRs) from across the Global South. The workshop will encourage and support ECRs from the Global South to develop scholarly publications for major international journals, to prepare internationally competitive funding bids, to build scholarly networks across the humanities and social sciences, and to develop connections with senior academics and scholarly editors. A related goal is to advance the decolonization of the discipline of Comparative Literature and related realms of inquiry (critical theory, cultural studies, art history, anthropology).
