The Kerala Council for Historical Research invites applications from M.Phil/Ph. D. level researchers from India  for a Workshop on ‘Gender and History’ to be held in association with IUCSSRE, M. G. University, Kottayam from 19-22 March 2020 at Kottayam, Kerala

The aim of the workshop is to think of new ways of investigating the past, with special attention given to engaging history intersectionally – in other words, opening up ways of bringing within the same frame questions of gender, caste, religious community, class, sexuality, amongst others – and thinking about how this may, in turn, help re-conceptualise their theme, or period. The workshop is open to students working on any aspect or period of history, with a focus on gender. The workshop aims to aid students at different stages of their research life – so those entering a PhD after completion of an MPhil, currently enrolled in a PhD programme, and a few fresh post doc students are encouraged to apply for this workshop. All sessions will be structured as ways to engage different themes intellectually, through discussion and debate, and critical feedback on research papers will aim to help the researchers sharpen their questions while rethinking modes of enquiry.

Workshop Co-ordinator: Professor G. Arunima, Centre for WOmen's Studies, JNU; Scholar-in-Residence, KCHR

Laste Date of Application: 7February 2020
