'Postcolonial Studies in the Public Sphere’ is an AHRC funded project (in association with Durham University & Queen’s University Belfast)and is an innovative training event on public engagement. It brings together researchers working in the field of Postcolonial Studies and individuals and organizations involved in a wide range of political, cultural, and community oriented endeavours outside of the academy. This interactive colloquium is aimed at Early Career Researchers and Postgraduate Researchers, whose research is situated within the field of Postcolonial Studies or shares its interests.
'Postcolonial Studies in the Public Sphere’ offers new researchers, in conversation with a wide range of experienced academics and practitioners from diverse cultural, political, and social fields, the opportunity to think critically about: public engagement possibilities within their own research; building collaborative relationships with organizations and individuals outside the academy; the contribution research, and themselves as researchers, can make to wider society.
The afternoon sessions will feature workshops which include practitioners involved in film making, community theatre, public awareness raising, independent publishing, social activism and adult education. The morning sessions will be dedicated to researchers presenting their work.
