The CRPLPC at the Jindal Global Law School opens up a space hitherto not available within law schools in India that will accommodate non-law scholars concerned with the working of the law in a postcolonial context to dialogue without the constraints of disciplinary boundaries. It will be a space that will bring together, among others, Feminists, Marxists, Theologists, Queer Theorists, Dalit Scholars, Crip Theorists to dialogue, debate and disturb the assumptions that underlie an uncritical reading of the life and times of law, society, culture and the market in postcolonial societies.

CRPLPC will be a forum-based initiative that will operate as an intellectual clearing house engaged in convening workshops/ conferences, reading groups, building a network of academics, activists, writers, filmmakers, musicians and performers, of research centres on critical theory and postcolonial studies around the world, and remain committed to publishing sophisticated theoretical scholarship at the interstices of law, culture studies, postcolonial theory and critical theory.


Inaugurated in June 2009, BIARI is a major faculty development initiative at Brown University, USA that convenes high-level academic Institutes on Brown's campus each summer. Organized by discipline and designed and run by recognized scholars, each Institute addresses the canonical and cutting-edge questions of the field, and contributes to building the next generation of transnational academic community.

The objective of the BIARI program is to provide a platform for promising young faculty from the global south and emerging economies to engage in a high level and sustained intellectual and policy dialogue with leading scholars in their fields and each other. Institutes foster scholarly networks among young faculty, while providing them with an opportunity to develop their scholarship agendas.
