Colonial Cultures: A One-Day PhD Student Workshop

Colonial Cultures: A One-Day PhD Student Workshop – sponsored by AHRC

We invite PhD students from any UK-based university whose work addresses colonial and post-colonial studies to attend a doctoral training day at the University of Warwick on Wednesday 2 July 2008.  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.  Travel expenses will be met and overnight accommodation will be arranged for all students who attend.

Places are limited; students will be selected on the basis of research excellence, though some priority will be given to students in their 2nd or 3rd year 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.

If you would like to attend please e-mail the following information to Ms Sue Dibben: HRC@warwick.ac.uk by Friday 23rd May 2008.  Places are limited, and some priority may be given to students in their second year of study or above.  

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