Applications Now Open – Decolonial Methodologies Summer School for Doctoral Researchers

We are thrilled to announce that the International Institute for Cultural Enquiry is holding a 5-day summer school on Decolonial Methodologies, in partnership with colleagues from the Exeter Decolonising Network.


Up to 15 places are available to doctoral researchers currently registered for an MPhil or PhD at the University of Exeter (Streatham, St Luke’s, Penryn or Truro Campuses); there is no restriction on the applicants’ home discipline, but the proposed PhD topic should be linked to “cultural enquiry”.   

Over 5 days, participants will explore how established and emerging methodologies employed in decolonial research practices can contribute to the participants’ own research programmes – at doctoral level and beyond.  The aim of the Summer School is to introduce doctoral researchers to the possibilities found in decolonial studies, and is particularly aimed at researchers who have an interest in decolonial methodologies but have not yet worked through their explicit significance for their current and future research. Doctoral researchers at any stage of their research can apply.

The Summer School will comprise a variety of activities including key readings seminars, lectures and discussion groups, collaborative “learning through practice” sessions, research co-production and writing workshops, participant presentations, engagement with external partner organisations and reflective learning… Find out more and apply.

*If you believe you are eligible, download and complete the application form,  which should be returned to  by 09:00, 24th May 2021.
