The New InterdisciplinarityOver the past few years, interdisciplinarity has quickly become the model for future academic research. But what does this future look like? And is there just one or are there multiple interdisciplinary futures imaginable?
Colonialism on the Public StageThis workshop welcomes contributions from scholars working in history, legal studies, memory studies, anthropology, sociology, political science or other relevant fields. We hope that by bringing various disciplines into conversation with each other we can better understand the wide-ranging effects of official initiatives to come to terms with the colonial past. We will seek to write a set of recommendations and conclusions about official memory.
Home, Homeland, and BelongingThe Fares Center at the Fletcher School is hosting a workshop at NIAS July 14th-15th in partnership with UCLA, NIAS, and Queen Mary University of London. This workshop is an important milestone in a year-long research project exploring the interrelated categories of home and homeland, belonging, and equal citizenship in societies riven by various forms of conflict.
Exploring the Violent End of European EmpiresThe violence attending the end of European empires after 1945 continues to fascinate historians, cultural anthropologists, and political scientists, principally those working from comparative politics and international relations perspectives. With so many working across disciplines it is little wonder that there have been big changes of analytical direction, specialist language, and conceptual approach to the subject of violent decolonization, its actors and agents, the responses and rights of those targeted. What are the ideas and approaches to studying forms and legacies of decolonization violence today?
Substance use and mental health: Causal questions and interdisciplinary researchThis workshop is being organised by dr.

Dr. Treur is supported in carrying out this work by the L'Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Fellowship.

Political Masculinities as an Analytical CategoryThis workshop represents a novel attempt to bring together approaches to and understandings of "men in politics" and "political masculinities". Through substantial synergies from the dialogue between these two approaches, we can anchor the concept of "masculinity" as an analytical category and tool within the field of political analysis.
