New Voices in Postcolonial Studies

Twitter @NVPoco

‘New Voices in Postcolonial Studies’ is a postgraduate researcher-led network for M3C and WRoCAH institutions.

The network aims to provide a supportive forum for PhDs across all disciplinary backgrounds to connect with each other, share their work, and most importantly, share their passion for postcolonial research!

We hope to create a meaningful cross-disciplinary community where we can experiment with new ideas, meet other like-minded researchers, and give constructive feedback on each other’s work.

In the 2018/19 session we will be hosting two networking events at the University of Sheffield on the 24th October and University of Leicester on the 21st November, and a Symposium in summer 2019.

This year the network will be directed by Sofia Aatkar (Nottingham Trent University) and Emily Kate Timms (University of Leeds) and a friendly team of city representatives.

The network has been funded by M3C and WRoCAH, with support from the Northern Postcolonial Network, the Institute for Colonial and Postcolonial Studies, and the Postcolonial Studies Association.
