PhD/ Early Career Mentoring Workshop

Birkbeck, University of London, 19th September 2019

The CPD Working Group is committed to cultivating early career scholars’ professional development through advice, collaboration, engagement and networking. This mentoring workshop will provide a space for PhD and Early Career researchers working within the broad remit of (post)colonial/decolonial thought to help develop part of their research into a paper for academic publication.

This workshop will provide a basis for the CPD mentoring network, designed to match up senior and junior colleagues in the field for career development support. The PhD/ ECR workshop will be held on the day before the CPD annual workshop – attendees of the former will be invited to attend and warmly welcomed at the latter.

To apply for the mentoring workshop please send your paper abstract by June 24th 2019 to

Please note that you can forward an abstract for any work-in-progress related broadly to the colonial question, it does not have to be related to the following day’s workshop theme of ‘Racial Capitalism’!
