Call for Papers: The Colonial/Postcolonial New Researchers’ Workshop

The Colonial/Postcolonial New Researchers’ Workshop

The Colonial/Postcolonial New Researchers’ Workshop – a workshop for PGRs and early career researchers in colonial and postcolonial history held at the IHR – is currently inviting abstracts for papers to be delivered at the seminar in the upcoming academic year. Details below:

The Colonial/Postcolonial New Researchers’ Workshop is currently inviting abstract submissions for the 2012-13 academic year.

Established in 2008, the workshop is designed to provide a forum for postgraduates and new researchers to gather and present their work in an informal and friendly environment. Seminars run on a bi-weekly basis at the Institute of Historical Research (IHR), intercalated with the Imperial and World History series (www.history.ac.uk/events/seminars/124<http://www.history.ac.uk/events/seminars/124>). Papers are generally 25-30 minutes long, followed by discussion.

We welcome papers on any aspect of colonial or postcolonial history, and encourage new and interdisciplinary approaches (eg. anthropology, art, history, geography, literature). Potential paper topics might include, but are not limited to:
Borders, Encounters, Conflict Zones

Family, Kinship, Childhood, and Memory

Bodies, Health, Welfare

Sexualities, Genders, and Intimacies

Indigenous Histories and Encounters

Representation and Performance

Environment, Social and Spatial Landscapes

Diasporas, Migration and Identities

Labour, Commodities, and Consumption

Anyone interested in presenting their work, whether finished pieces or works in progress, is encouraged to submit an abstract of between 250-350 words to cpnewresearchers@gmail.com. Abstracts should be sent no later than Friday 17 August 2012.

For the first time, this year the IHR is offering to podcast seminars through their website (http://www.history.ac.uk/digital/podcasts). If you are interested in having your paper recorded, please indicate with your abstract submission.
