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 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)
  • The name and email address of your supervisor
  • One or two paragraphs summarising your research project
