The Journal of Southern African Studies (JSAS, UK) will host a three-day Early Career Scholars’ Writing Workshop on 16-18 July 2019 at the National University of Lesotho, Roma Campus. Primarily, this Workshop is intended to benefit early-to-mid-career scholars working in the Universities of Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland, though a few places will be available for scholars from other parts of southern Africa.
The Organising Committee that will select papers and authors for mentoring during the Workshop is made up of leading scholars who are members of the JSAS Advisory Board based in the southern African region. They will seek original research and critical thinking. We want papers that show the value of empirical studies for broader societal issues. During the workshop, participants may also present their papers alongside established scholars from the JSAS Board, where papers will be critiqued in an egalitarian atmosphere that will promote new ways of understanding the problems and opportunities facing southern Africans today.
For Requirements and application details, please go to our Resources page.
Applications should be sent between 1st October and 20 December 2018, the latter being the deadline for full drafts of the paper which will be revised at the workshop.
