Fully funded places available for upcoming workshop "The Moral Dimensions of Economic Life in Africa".

The Global South Studies Centre are offering two fully funded places for their upcoming workshop "The Moral Dimensions of Economic Life in Africa."

The workshop, organised by Cristiano Lanzano (The Nordic Africa Institute, Sweden), Tijo Salverda (Global South Studies Center, University of Cologne, Germany) and Dr Jörg Wiegratz (School of Politics and International Studies, University of Leeds), will be held on Thursday 8 - Friday 9 November 2018 at the University of Cologne.

In addition to a number of scholars that have already been invited to the workshop, funds are available for two more scholars. Travel and accommodation expenses will be covered. Scholars based in African universities and research institutions are particularly encouraged to apply and an effort will be made to support their participation.

If you are interested, please send your title, author’s information and abstract (max. 500 words) to j.wiegratz@leeds.ac.uk by Friday 7 September.

The authors of the accepted proposals will receive a notification within 10 days and full papers (about 6.000 words) will be expected by 22 October.

We would be pleased if you could kindly share this call widely with colleagues. We very much look forward to your proposals.
