As more scholars in different places are beginning to apply the method of conversational thinking as a decolonial approach to research in the humanities, it has become necessary to convene a colloquium of such scholars to motivate collaborations, interdisciplinarity, interculturality and advancement of the method. To this end, we are organising and hosting a two-day colloquium on Applications of Conversational Thinking as a decolonial method in the humanities. The colloquium would bring together researchers to brainstorm and work out ways of closer cooperation and collaborations. The outcome of the colloquium will be published in a special issue of Arumaruka: Journal of Conversational Thinking. The colloquium will be opened with a keynote by Prof CK Raju of the Indian Institute of Education.
