2014 Cadbury Fellowships Programme at University of Birmingham (Fully-Funded)

Deadline: November 22, 2013

Applications are invited from early-career researchers for the 2014 Cadbury fellowships programme. The annual programme targets researchers who wish to spend a period of ten weeks with Cadbury discussing and developing the results of their primary research. The programme will culminate in an international conference to be held at the University of Birmingham from 15 to 17 May 2014. The visiting fellows will present their papers alongside a range of established and younger participants who share their interest in this year’s theme. Fellowships will cover return air-fare, accommodation and living costs for this period.

The Cadbury fellowships programme is run every year by the Department of African Studies and Anthropology at the University of Birmingham.


  • Applications are invited 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.
