Cumberland Lodge Colloquium Scheme 2018

Cumberland Lodge Logo

Cumberland Lodge has launched a new round of applications for the annual Cumberland Colloquia scheme, seeking doctoral students and early career researchers to host an academic conference on a topic relating to identities or belonging, in autumn 2018.

Every year we offer a committee of successful applicants the chance to develop an inter-disciplinary conference at Cumberland Lodge from scratch, with guidance and mentoring from our Events Programme and Education team.

Previous topics have ranged from from the challenges posed by advances in biotechnology to the corporate responsibility to protect human rights, whether the car has an ethical and sustainable future, how discourses of religious otherness can be challenged to build a more inclusive society, and how we can build more cohesive societies.

This year we will particularly welcome applications on inter-disciplinary topics relating to identities and belonging.

Groups applying to take part can either be from the same institution or multiple institutions in the UK.
