Dealing with Difficult Research
One-day interdisciplinary workshop on conducting research
on sensitive, controversial, challenging and emotionally difficult topics
University of Warwick, Friday 13 July 1018
The importance of religion in contemporary debates ranging from nationalism to its place in the public sphere is exceedingly being felt. Nations -- referred to as imagined communities (c.f. Anderson) -- speak to the profound need for both legitimacy and belonging(ness), often articulated through one’s religious vis-a-vis ethnic identities in the modern world. This volume will explore this issue by focusing on the relationships between religion, geo-politics and the articulation of nationalism in the context of South Asia.
Funded by the 2018 Collaborative Project Proposal Grant of the Academy of Global Humanities and Critical Theory, this workshop seeks to bring together faculty and graduate students who are working on ways to radically rethink the political in the face of a growing convergence between neoliberalism

The Journal of Decolonising Disciplines (JDD) is pleased to invite contributions to its inaugural issue which will appear in August 2018. As an intellectual space, the JDD aims to provide a platform for considering decolonising strategies in all disciplines across the various faculties of the university. While the debate on decolonisation has been largely limited to the faculties of Arts/Humanities and Social Sciences, we recognize the need for a journal that will encourage a transdisciplinary conversation on decolonising all disciplinary knowledges at the contemporary university.
