The final seminar of the Diaspora Studies Workshop for this semester (wipes away a tear) will be:
25th March 2014 – Dawn Sherratt-Bado (University of Edinburgh)
‘”Black” Magic and Uncommon Realities: Folk Medicine and Religion in Afro-Caribbean Literature’
As always the seminar will be at noon in room 2M.24 of the William Robertson Wing, Doorway 4 of the Old Medical Quad.
All are welcome, so please come along.
An interesting scheme that you may want to get involved in is ‘At Home In Scotland’. This scheme hopes to address the need for young researchers to communicate their research to a wider and more diverse audience than just the academy.
It is run by University of Edinburgh students and the deadline for getting involved is 7th March (so this Friday). There is a focus on the ideas of nation and identity so would be perfect for PhDs and ECRs interested in the diaspora.
