As mentioned in the last post, the School of Advanced Study at the University of London organises an annual international debate for outstanding young researchers in the humanities and social sciences. The competition is open to scholars who are in their final-year of doctoral study or up to 10 years beyond the award of their doctorate. Selected applicants will be awarded bursaries to contribute to travel and accommodation costs.
This year’s theme is “Is there a future for human rights in a non-Western world?” and a call for papers is out with a final submission date of Monday 7 february 2011.
The subject certainly seems suitable for a number of scholars working on slum tourism and the possibilities of bursaries to contribute travel and accommodation costs may provide an opportunity for overseas scholars to come and share their work.
