Jacob Smith's picture


The Colonial/Postcolonial New Researchers’ Workshop is currently inviting abstract submissions for the 2018/19 academic year. The workshop was established in 2008, to provide a forum for postgraduates and early career researchers to meet and present their work or new research in an informal environment. Seminars run on a bi-weekly basis at the Institute of Historical Research (IHR) in London, intercalated with the Imperial and World History Seminar.


The workshop invites proposals for papers or panels on any aspect of colonial or postcolonial history, from any region of the world. Papers that tackle any specific methodological, theoretical or interdisciplinary concerns within this field are welcome. Seminars will take place on Monday evenings on a fortnightly basis.

Anyone interested in presenting their work, whether finished pieces or works in progress, are encouraged to submit a paper title alongside an abstract of 250-350 words and a short bio to Abstracts should be submitted no later than 31st July. Decisions will be made in early August. Please feel free to circulate this email more widely to anyone you believe might be interested.

Additionally, if you are interested in becoming involved in the running of the workshop, please feel free to send an email to the same address.

Unfortunately, at this time the workshop cannot offer any reimbursement for travel to the seminars or expenses.
