Epistemologies of the South: Mapping New Directions in Australian Social Sciences
When: Thursday 14 April 2016, 9:00 – 5:00pm
Venue: Conference Room, 174 City Road, Darlington Centre, University of Sydney
Convenors: Raewyn Connell / Fran Collyer
Calls to decolonise the social sciences have raised questions about the global and national politics of knowledge, the shifting structures of knowledge production, and the capacity of existing social theory to explain the world.
At present, the place of Australian social science in the global postcolonial knowledge project is unclear. This workshop will bring together scholars developing postcolonial and Southern perspectives in the social and political sciences.
The event will be an important moment in the development of Australian social science agendas that challenge Eurocentricism and carve out new directions for theory and research. Across the day, there will be focused discussion about current and future possibilities for research and collaboration.
The workshop is a free event.
ECRs and HDR students are invited to apply for travel funding.
