In light of the still untenable conditions posed by the Covid-19 global pandemic, the organizers of the International Conference and Academic Workshop “Decolonizing Global Studies: Charting Trends, Mapping Trajectories” have decided to make important decisions. Sensitive to the context of our times yet remaining committed to pursue meaningful academic endeavors, the international conference and academic workshop will be shifting to an online platform with the following adjusted schedule:
The academic workshop will be a one-day event, set on September 10, 2020 (Thursday). The brief morning session will be focused on providing feedback to the accepted papers to be given by the workshop mentors. The afternoon session will have a forum with editors of journals and academic presses to share insights on publishing.
The conference will push through via Zoom with 3 sessions scheduled on the afternoon of September 11 (Friday) and two sessions on September 12 (Saturday). The afternoon session on September 11 will have the presentations of the keynote speakers. Sessions with accepted paper presenters will then be conducted on September 12.
The organizers will continue to accept abstract submissions until July 15, 2020 and submission of full papers for consideration to be included in the workshop would be accepted until July 30. Notices of acceptance will be sent by early August.
