This workshop welcomes submissions addressing alternative ways to think about knowledge production in the humanities. Participants will explore how racial and gendered positionalities expose the margins of traditional academic discourse and discuss the potential of community-based and collaborative research in the humanities.

Proposals addressing the intersection of academic research and social-political activism, marginalised forms of knowledge production, and the politics of research are especially welcome.

By May 25, 2018 please submit an abstract of 150-300 words, a brief bio, and any A/V to Elsa Charléty (Brown University) and Edwige Crucifix (Brown University) at elsa_charlety@brown.edu and edwige_crucifix@brown.edu.
