Who is eligible for a Cadbury Fellowship?We invite applications from early-career researchers based in African institutions. Applicants should have completed their main period of primary doctoral research and be either in the stage of writing up their dissertation or, if they have completed their dissertation, be looking to develop publications from it.
Applicants’ research should be relevant to the theme of Class and Africa, and they should be ready to discuss their findings and interpretations in a series of reading groups, seminar presentations, journal workshops and other activities over a ten-week period, before presenting their paper at the international conference. It is expected that fellows will seek to publish their paper as a journal article.
