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.

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.

If you would prefer not to present a paper but would like to be involved in chairing or acting as a respondent, please indicate this in the Eventbrite registration form.

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

Please include an indicative title and a 250-word outline of roughly what you will be speaking on in the Eventbrite registration form, or send this to, by Friday 21 June.
