Date: August 25, 2020

Venue: Future Africa Campus, University of Pretoria


Applications of Conversational Thinking and its Logic

Keynote Lecturer/5th DALS: Professor C.K. Raju, Indian Institute of Advanced Studies

As more scholars in different places are beginning to apply conversational thinking and its logic as prototype decolonial systems, it has become necessary to convene a colloquium of such scholars to motivate collaborations, interdisciplinarity and advancement of the two systems. To this end, the CSP is organising and hosting a one-day colloquium on Applications of Conversational Thinking and its logic of Ezimezu as decolonial method and logic in the humanities. The coloquium would bring together researchers who are currently deploying the method in their research to present papers, brian-storm and work out ways of closer cooperation and interdisciplinary collaborations. The outcome of the colloquium would be published in a special issues of Filosofia Theoretica, an accredited humanities journal. The colloquium will be opened with a keynote that doubles as the 5th CSP Distinguished Academic Lecture Series (DALS).

Abstract submission: Maximum of 200 words should be sent as an attachment in microsoft word formnat to editor@cspafrica.org on or before March 15, 2020. There may be small funding support for delegates attending from outside South Africa.
