Seminar Series

Postcolonial Studies Network

The aim of this seminar series on research in progress is to foster a dynamic and interdisciplinary postcolonial research culture across the School of Arts and Humanities, supportive of individual scholarship and as a platform for further collaboration.  Undergraduates, postgraduates and scholars from across the university community and elsewhere – all are welcome.

If you would like to join the seminar mailing list and / or present a paper, please contact the series convenor, Ruvani Ranasinha.

The Postcolonial Studies Network is supported by the King's Annual Fund.
