BAME Doctoral Researchers Event

BAME Doctoral Researchers Event

Issued: Mon, 03 Jun 2019 12:01:00 BST

The AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership working group will host a BAME Doctoral Researchers Event on 8th July at the British Library, London, to showcase and celebrate the work being done by our BAME researchers.

This event follows on from the first BAME Doctoral Researchers Consultation Event hosted by North West Consortium DTP at the University of Manchester in December 2018.

Call for presentations: We invite BAME doctoral researchers in the Arts and Humanities across the UK to present short, research-in-progress papers on any aspect of their research at an event to celebrate and showcase BAME doctoral research. This call is open to all arts and humanities BAME doctoral researchers. The programme allows for 10 presentations - should we receive more than ten paper proposals, we’ll give priority to third and second year researchers - and then make plans for a repeat event. Presenters are free to choose whether or not their presentation will directly address the challenges and/or opportunities of being a BAME researcher - and should be no longer than 15-minutes to allow for discussion and reflection.   Please send an indicative title and a 250-word outline of roughly what you will be speaking on to by Friday 21 June.

If you would prefer not to present a paper but would like to be involved in chairing or acting as a respondent, you can also let the organizers know. Equally, if you would just like to attend, without being actively involved in presenting or chairing, that is fine too.   

The event is free. To help us organise catering, please register using the Eventbrite link provided:

SGSAH will cover travel and accommodation costs and can if required, book for you in advance. Get in touch with further information about this.

Non-BAME doctoral researchers are also warmly invited to attend this event and SGSAH may be able to cover travel and accommodation costs. If you are interested in attending, please contact in the first instance to register your interest.
