The Politics of the Social and Beyond: Hegemonies, Resistances, and Negotiations

Date: 27 June 2015 at 10:00 AM

Venue: B 104, Brunei Gallery, SOAS, University of London

Call for Papers

A one-day workshop hosted by the SOAS South Asia Institute, University of London

“The Politics of the Social and Beyond: Hegemonies, Resistances, and Negotiations”.

The SOAS South Asia Institute (SSAI) is pleased to announce a call for papers for the next Punjab Research Group meeting in June. The SSAI welcomes this opportunity to host the bi-annual PRG meeting and is supporting a number of Punjab-related initiatives, including teaching and research as well as the hosting of a monthly poetry/study group Sangat: Dialog Punjab open to the public.

The realm of the social is often viewed primarily through relations and interactions which exist alongside or even in spite of wider political, historical and economic processes. This one-day workshop aims to bring together a number of papers which focus on the ways in which the social informs and is informed by these broader processes by focusing upon how domination, governance, resistance, and negotiation have taken place over time.

Paper presenters are invited to submit expressions of interest, titles, and abstracts of 200 words. While the theme is a broadly stated one on the politics of the social, this can be interpreted in a plethora of ways. The invitation to submit titles and abstracts is extended to all disciplines, and the intention is that the day will result in an inter-disciplinary dialogue.

This PRG meeting will be co-organised by Navtej Purewal (SOAS) and Pippa Virdee (De Montfort University).

Please send 200 word abstracts, titles, and expressions of interest by May 1st to ssai@soas.ac.uk.

Registration:

This workshop will charge a minimal fee towards lunch.
