This interdisciplinary and international project is organized jointly by faculty in Geography and Spanish & Portuguese at Indiana University and from the Dept of Humanities and Social Sciences at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research - Mohali. The workshop brings together twelve scholars from different disciplinary and area-specific backgrounds for a four-day workshop on comparative subalternities. The thematic focus is on the historiography, history, and politics of social and spatial marginalization, especially in the Global South. The aim of the workshop is to foster new forms of international collaboration across national and regional boundaries by staging multi-disciplinary conversations between scholars based in Delhi and other areas of India, Latin America, Africa, and the United States. The workshop will have approximately four panels each day, for three days. Each panel will last one hour, during which all participating members will discuss and comment on a single participant’s piece of original scholarship. There will also be a keynote address by a prominent scholar each day. The event will take place at the IU Gateway Office in Gurgaon. The project is funded by the and Antipode Foundation International Workshop Grant and the New Frontiers in the Arts & Humanities-New Currents Award.
Workshop Organizers: Dr. Majed Akhter, Dr. Ishan Ashutosh, Dr. Ricardo Andrés Guzmán, Dr. Olimpia Rosenthal, and Dr. Anu Sabhlok.
