Researching Southern Africa: A Postgraduate Workshop

Monday 2 June 2014, Institute of Commonwealth Studies

The Southern Africa Seminar Series of the University of London invites submissions for a postgraduate workshop on Researching Southern Africa. The one-day event will bring together doctoral students and scholars working in a range of disciplines and thematic interests relating to the region of Southern Africa. The workshop will enable doctoral researchers to present their work in an informal and inclusive atmosphere and to gain valuable feedback from scholars based across the London Colleges who specialise in Southern Africa.  Featuring a talk on publishing in academic journals by the Chair of the Journal of Southern African Studies, it will also be an opportunity to strengthen networks within London and to identify opportunities for future collaboration. Deadline for abstracts: Friday 28 March 2014.
