Comparative Humanities


Call for Publications

Theme: Comparative Humanities
Subtitle: Re-Configuring Humanities of the Global South
Publication: Edited Volume
Deadline: 25.9.2017


We invite original and unpublished academic/research papers regarding
the topic 'Comparative Humanities' for an edited volume to be
published by a reputed publication house with a recognized ISBN. The
volume aims to bring together in print the diverse ideas and
conceptualizations about the concept 'Comparative Humanities' - with
a special focus on understanding and redefining 'Humanities' as
practiced in the Global South.

The focus of the volume would be on the 'problematic of singularity'
in the humanities with regard to teaching and research. Articles that
draw our attention to the crisis of humanities in the non-European
cultures are invited. The state of humanites in the countries of the
Global South (Asia, in particular), will serve to demonstrate the
lack of a comparative paradigm in terms of comprehending humanistic
insights. Not only is Asian humanities not taught in the universities
of the globe, but also Asian thinkers are, more often than not,
classified as contributing to the orientalist paradigm generated by
the West. Articles that deliberate upon the Asian epistemology with a
concern to establish a dialogic reciprocal relationship with the
western humanistic paradigms are most welcome.

The volume seeks to invite theoretical inquires on the following
topics:


- Conceptualizing Asian epistemology
- Human Sciences of the East
- The Eastern  reception and reciprocation
- The crisis of humanities
- Unconditional thinking and university pedagogy
- Comparative science of humanities
- Challenging colonial amnesia
- Comparative thought: what the west knows from the east
- Translating Humanities
- Conceptualizing Asian Art history and Musicology
- Conceptions of the human in Asian cultures
