Our 2019 International Colloquium is scheduled to be held on 21 to 22 November 2019 under the theme: Making Epistemic Justice: An International Colloquium On Narrative Capabilities and Participatory Research

The organisation for this colloquium is being handled by Drs Carmen Martinez-Vargas and Pablo Del Monte of the Higher Education and Human Development Research Group. 

Consider the following blurb on the colloquium as an invitation: 

The pursuit of social justice requires of scholars and practitioners to rethink the terms in which societies and individual’s lives are understood. An expanding field of enquiry is unfolding around the idea that there is no social justice without epistemic justice. While much of the work done on this matter is either theoretical or applied research, the methodological dimension is often overlooked. In this colloquium organised by the Higher Education and Human Development Research Group, we aim to reflect on the limitations and possibilities of pursuing epistemic justice through the praxis of research. Using the capabilities approach as a theoretical framework, this colloquium will contribute to these debates focusing particularly on two methodological approaches: research for the enhancement of narrative capability and the epistemic contributions of participatory research. The colloquium will offer an international approach to the discussion, including presentations of scholars from around the world, addressing the debate in its intersecting global and local dimensions. The colloquium will provide a valuable opportunity for scholars and any individual interested to expand and generate a critical conversation about this pressing matter.
