The College of Humanities and Social Sciences has received funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for the project entitled: “Archiving, Memory and Method from the Global South.” The project seeks to centre global debates in archiving, memory and method in Humanities and Humanistic Social Sciences research at Makerere University. It is a capacity building project that will fund research by Makerere University scholars (both faculty and students) to study formal and non-formal archival repository institutions as well as community archiving. Drawing on archives located in specific communities or institutions, the funded researchers will examine the role of these repositories in public life. Community engagement will be key in the project. The research outputs are expected to promote dialogue over the decolonization of knowledge in the Global South through revision of curricula, pedagogy and methodology in archival studies and research.
Therefore, the College calls for interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research proposals from all disciplines in the Humanities and Humanistic Social Sciences on any of the three themes listed on the link below:
