Liberating   Comparisons   starts   from   the   premise   that   comparative approaches are a potentially powerful means of disrupting and deepening our understandings of the world, pushing  us  to  adapt  existing  theories  and  build  new  ones.  In order to realise this potential, however, we need to think critically  about  the  terms  of  our  comparisons  and  how  we  pursue them. Only then will comparative approaches be able to  break  out  of  the  ‘epistemic  enclosure’  (Munshi  2017)  –  the constrained ways of thinking – that they may, otherwise, reinforce.
