Baraza Ijtihad, the meeting space for critical self-reflection, is now accepting content that interrogates developments phenomena in the Middle East, South Asia, and Africa in their intellectual contexts. Baraza facilitates dialogue between scholars and thinkers across regions and intellectual traditions and seeks to present academic discussions that are responsive to contemporary realities and technological change and that engage a wider public audience in debate.
Originally a project developed by graduate students at Columbia University to contemplate the relationship among the core regions that make up the Global South, Baraza has attracted over 15,000 page views from over 20 countries. That number is expected to grow as we roll out a number of new initiatives in the coming months.
Prospective contributors can submit blog posts, review articles, features ,and visual as well as aural content that explore topics of concern to our three regions of interests. Preference will be given to content that puts at least two regions in relation to each other or that considers what new information and communication technologies and the digital humanities mean for thinking about the Middle East, South Asia and Africa.
Please visit our website barazaonline.org to check out our blog and to read more about the project.
If you are interested in submitting, please contact Wendell Marsh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing your ideas.
