Call for Papers, deadline – 31 July 2024
The Centre for Comparative Modernities (CCM) invites proposals for twenty-minute papers for their 2024/25 Spring Workshop series. Proposals are welcome from PhD postgraduates and Early Career Researchers from across all disciplines. The seminar series offers the opportunity to present research (both on-ongoing and completed) and to receive informal feedback from peers.
As a centre CCM aims to foster an interdisciplinary perspective that moves beyond the western-centric paradigm of modernity and to challenge conventional understandings of how the world has changed over time. Papers focused on international and comparative approaches are particularly welcome. Topics may include but are not limited to:
- Modernities and the 19th Century
- Modernity and Westernization
- Transnational modernities
- East Asian modernities
- Philosophical perspectives on modernities
- Technological modernities
- Modernities and gender
Please submit a title and abstract of no more than 300 words along with a short biography (max. 100 words) to email@example.com by 31 July 2024. All sessions will be held online.
