“Developing interdisciplinary voices among Africa's newest researchers”
A funded mentoring and writing workshop opportunity for early career researchers in humanities and social sciences. To include attendance at a workshop and conference in Nairobi, Kenya, 14-18 September 2020.
Supported by the British Academy and the Global Academy of Liberal Arts
Deadline for applications: 31 March 2020
The British Academy and the Global Academy of Liberal Arts (GALA) are supporting a mentoring and writing workshop programme for sixteen early career researchers in humanities and social sciences at Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia; Catholic University of Eastern Africa, Kenya; University of Namibia; and Wits University, South Africa. The programme will aim to help ECRs develop their 'interdisciplinary voice': specifically how to write for, and with, international scholars working in other disciplines.
In conjunction with Bath Spa University, UK, the four African universities will co-organise a seven month mentorship and a 3-day workshop to coincide with GALA's seventh annual conference, 'Liberal arts for Tomorrow', to be hosted by the Catholic University of Eastern Africa in Kenya in September 2020. Four participants from each African university will be matched with international
mentors from across the GALA network, and will work with them to support the drafting of a journal article through to potential submission.
