CFP: Changing Bangladesh
April 30, 2019
Once dubbed a ‘basket case’ and struggling with mass starvation, poor infrastructure, gender disparity, political turmoil, and aid dependency, Bangladesh has over the past 45 years made remarkable progress. Changes are visible in all spheres of life, including culture, society and politics. And yet the country still faces significant challenges, including continued inequality, climate change, rising authoritarianism, and corruption.
Set against this backdrop, this workshop is set to examine changing Bangladesh from different humanities and social science perspectives. We welcome papers on topics broadly relevant to this theme.
We invite everyone who would like to present their work at the workshop to send us a title and short abstract by 30 April 2019. If you would like to chair a session or be a discussant, or just attend, we are also very happy to welcome you, but do let us know. As we need to know numbers of attendees for catering purposes, it would be great if you could let us know if you are planning to attend by 30 April.
