Diaspolinks International Research Group

Project Details

Description

In 2013, I co-founded an international research group called Diaspolinks with colleagues similarly in the field of postcolonial studies based at two French universities (Caen and Paris 10) and the University of South Australia. We put on our first event, an international conference entitled 'The Place of Memory in Diasporic Cultures' in France in 2013. In 2015-16 we put on our second event: two full calendar years' worth of seminars at the University of Edinburgh's IASH, entitled 'Diasporic Trajectories'. We had over twenty invited guest speakers, the majority of whom well established specialists in the field of postcolonial studies both nationally and internationally.
