The configuration, production, dissemination and normalization of ways of knowing and being, have too often, been constructed in a way that disadvantages and excludes Southern perspectives. This has led to the toxic acceptance of the “logic of the system” where dominant, Northern perspectives, are taken as an unquestionable given. This one-day conference will encourage participants to question the logic of the system and generate disruptive, counter orthodoxy perspectives. This is from across all disciplines including history, literature, economics, and the sciences.
The conference organisers invite participants to register and/or present proposals for workshops as well as abstracts for papers from a wide range of disciplines. The proposals/abstracts should be about 200 words and should be sent to Dr Momodou Sallah (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than the 15th of November 2016. All applicants will be informed of decisions by the 25th November 2016.
- Amplify missing Southern voices in dominant mainstream narratives.
- Provide a space to deconstruct configurations, dissemination and normalization of ways of knowing and being.
- Explore Southern perspectives through a range of disciplinary lenses towards a greater understanding of the natural and social sciences, associated with de-colonial, post-colonial, counter narratives.
