  Theme: Inequalities and Differences 
  Description: Inequalities and differences in the developing world have evolved historically. Caste, class, gender, ethnicity etc are reshaped to converge with circuits of global capital within and outside the nation-state. How do social and cultural mobilizations produce collective identities? Does the state’s intervention mitigate or reinforce disparities? What effects do solidarities and conflicts among the underprivileged have on society at large? The Workshop will address these and similar questions from the perspective of various social science disciplines. The Workshop is part of a project on ‘Training in New Social Science Research Methods’ being run by the Centre for Studies in Social Sciences, Calcutta (CSSSC).  
  Eligibility: Candidates with (i) postgraduate degree in any of the social science disciplines (e.g., economics, History, Sociology, Political Science, Cultural Studies, Development Studies, Environmental Science, Geography, Social Anthropology, Education) and (ii) who have either just begun or are intending to pursue doctoral research. 
  Format: The Workshop will have two parts. First: ‘Teaching Session’: detailed discussion of pre-circulated readings by resource persons. Second: ‘Library Session’: formulation of research questions by participants under the supervision of resource persons. 
  The 4-day workshop will be held from 1 July 2008 to 4 July 2008 at the CSSSC’s Baishnabghata-Patuli campus in Kolkata. The Workshop does not have any fees. Local hospitality and travel expenses of outstation participants will be covered by CSSSC with partial funding from Navajbai Ratan Tata Trust (NRTT). 
  Application: Each applicant is required to send a 500-word description of her/his proposed research along with curriculum vitae to the following address:
