Amen Jaffer participates in an Institute for Advanced Study workshop

Amen Jaffer (Assistant Professor, HSS) participated in the inaugural two-week summer workshop titled “Summer Program in Social Science” organized by the School of Social Science at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS), New Jersey, USA (June 18–June 29, 2018). The workshop featured 20 early-career scholars from Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America who shared their research projects with the participants with the aim of enriching the scope of the social sciences by enabling a discussion between different intellectual traditions and points of view and by facilitating international networks across continents. The program sought to feature voices from the global south, something that has been largely missing from academic discussions and syllabi around the world.
