Colonial Cultures

Wednesday 2nd July 2008, 09.30 - 17.30, Humanities Building

PhD students from any UK-based university, whose work addresses colonial or post-colonial studies, are invited to attend this post-doctoral training day at the University of Warwick.

The training day will be interdisciplinary, and subject areas may include (but are not limited to): anthropology, cultural studies, geography, history, literary studies and sociology. Places are limited - students will be selected on the basis of research excellence, though some priority will be given to students in their 2nd and 3rd years of study. Funding is provided by a grant from the collaborative research training provision of the AHRC, in partnership with Bristol University.

The workshop will consist of a series of themed panels, led by students and facilitated by academics, in the field of colonial and post-colonial studies. The workshop will provide a great opportunity for students to discuss and exchange their ideas and to learn about other doctoral research in their subject area.

The workshop is free of charge; travel expenses will be met and overnight accommodation arranged for any students attending

Students who are interested in attending should contact Ms Sue Dibben on HRC@warwick.ac.uk before 23rd May 2008 with the following information:

  • Your contact details, institution and department
  • Your current year of study and your funding source (self-funding, AHRC, ESRC overseas scholarship etc)
