Ninth Cadbury Fellowship Scheme and Workshop - applications invited
October 24, 2011
The Centre of West African Studies at the University of Birmingham (www.cwas.bham.ac.uk) invites applications for the 2012 Cadbury Fellowship Scheme, which, while taking note of the centenary year of the foundation of the African National Congress, will focus on issues in South Africanist research that resonate with African Studies more broadly.
Three visiting fellows from Africa will be appointed to participate in a ten-week schedule of seminars, discussion groups, and other activities. One aim of the scheme is to assist new scholars to develop a research paper and bring it to publication, and the programme will culminate in an interdisciplinary workshop to be held at the University of Birmingham on 18–19 May 2012 at which the visiting fellows will present their papers alongside an international cast of both established and younger participants.
Fellowships will cover return air-fare, accommodation and living costs for a period of up to ten weeks. The deadline for applications for fellowships is 1 December 2011.
