The broad theme this year is Cultures of Violence. The Workshop will examine recent intellectual explorations of cultural, political and social aspects of violence (including quotidian violence) and broaden their scope by throwing light on different features of contemporary Indian life. The Workshop is intended to give young researchers an opportunity to share their work with some of the faculty of the CSSSC and other senior scholars in the field. It is aimed at doctoral and postdoctoral students and young lecturers (below the age of 35) whose ongoing or recently completed work focuses on one or more aspects of the broad theme. They are required to present a paper around the theme of the Workshop. The morning session of each day will be devoted to faculty presentations based on a select number of readings (usually three). Each of these sessions will address a specific topic like theorizing violence, caste violence, religious violence, quotidian violence, representing violence, the city and rape, nonviolence etc. The afternoon sessions are for students' presentations (twenty minutes followed by discussant's comments and an open discussion). CSSSC will bear the expenses of AC three tier rail travel, accommodation and food in Calcutta for all selected candidates. Priority will be given to students from dalit, tribal and minority backgrounds. Those wishing to participate in the workshop may apply with their current CV clearly indicating date of birth, educational qualifications, current academic affiliation and mailing address and email IDs. Applications must include a brief description (between 500 and 750 words in typed pages) of the paper they intend to present on the theme of the Workshop. E-mail application must reach the Registrar, Centre for Studies in Social Sciences, Calcutta latest by 10 December, 2015 [email:]. For further details, check CSSSC's website:
