DSA2018: Global inequalities
University of Manchester, 27-29th June
Early career plenary speaker panel on “global inequalities”
The conference will include an early career researcher plenary speaker session (within 5 years of finishing PhD). The session aims to showcase emerging talent and showcase their thoughts on how research agendas in specific fields of development theory and practice can be moved forward. We are seeking early career researchers who can speak to how their research relates to, and pushes forward, the conference theme of “Global Inequalities”.
A full concept note for the conference theme is available here. Briefly, focusing on global inequalities challenges the traditional geographies of development, and demands investigation of the power relations that generate wealth and poverty within and between countries and regions. It also emphasises the many dimensions of inequality, including gender, class, climate, race and ethnicity, region, nationality, citizenship status, age, (dis)ability, sexuality, and religion and the ways these reinforce or counteract each other.
We expect to select a maximum of 3-4 speakers who will form one plenary panel.
The deadline for applications has now passed. The selection will be made by the conference organising committee. The conference registration, travel and accommodation costs for selected speakers will be covered by sponsorship from the Development Studies Association.All applicants are encouraged and welcome to submit an abstract for, and participate in, a regular paper session during the conference as well (deadline 9th March 2018). We expect to notify the selected plenary speakers before the call for papers closes on 9th March 2018).
