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.

For more information or to join our mailing list please email newvoicespocostudies@gmail.com.

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.
