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.
