Transnational and Transcultural Research Network is developing a conference “Transcultural Mappings : emerging issues in comparative, transnational and area studies” (see here for details).
They are having a network meeting and seminar this Thursday 13 August. All welcome.
Network meeting: 4-5pm. Come to meet others in the network, bring along colleagues who may be interested, and hear about our other plans.
Seminar: 5-6.30pm. Kevin Murray, Adjunct Professor, RMIT, will speak on “Verticalism and the Idea of South” (see here for text)
“How is the world constructed such that it has a top and a bottom? What role does this play in global politics? How is this arrangement contested today? This talk outlines the role that the idea of south continues to play in how the world is understood. It makes particular reference to a growing field of south-south exchange in academic fields.”
