BAME Doctoral Researchers Event

Monday 8 July 2019 | 1000 - 1630

Knowledge Centre, The British Library, London

The AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership working group will host a BAME Doctoral Researchers Event on 8th July at the British Library 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.

Confirmed Speakers for the Opening Panel are Dr. Nicole King, Lecturer at Goldsmiths & Dr. Emma Abotsi, British Sociological Association Fellow at the British Library.

The event will be held in the British Library’s Knowledge Centre, which is the building on the right-hand side as you walk across the piazza towards the Library from Euston Road. It has its own separate entrance to the main Library building. On arrival at the Knowledge Centre, head upstairs to the Bronte Room. Map/directions:

Call for presentations

The AHRC Doctoral Training Partnerships 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 BAME researchers, whether funded by a DTP or not. The program 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.

We are no longer accepting abstracts for papers and we have enough chairs and respondents for this event. We warmly invite you to register for a place below to participate as a member of the audience.

Non-BAME doctoral researchers are warmly invited to attend this event.

Terms and conditions

By registering below you are requesting a place on this event. A member of the CHASE team will contact you in due course to confirm that a place has been allocated to you. If you no longer require a place, please email as soon as possible so your name can be removed from the registration list.  

If you are allocated a place but can no longer attend, please email so that your place can be reallocated. CHASE events are free to attend and are often oversubscribed with a waiting list. Failure to notify us of non-attendance in good time (ideally 5 days prior to the event) means your place cannot be reallocated and may result in your access to future CHASE events being restricted.
