Cambridge Global Challenges


The Consortium for the Interdisciplinary Study of the Global South invites all Cambridge researchers - from PhD students to senior academics- working on the culture/nature interface or on any other theme related to postcolonial ecologies in the Global South to participate in this workshop.

This will be the first major event held by the Consortium for the Interdisciplinary Study of the Global South. The workshop will bring together the Centre of Development Studies, Centre of South Asian Studies, Centre of African Studies, Centre of Latin American Studies and University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute in order to exchange ideas and define collaborative research agendas regarding one of the most pressing issues of the 21st century: the relationship between humanity and the natural world. The main aim is for participants to learn about the work of colleagues across the University and therefore enhance the opportunities for future dialogues and collaborations. As such, likely formats are short presentations of ten minutes or round-table discussions but this will be confirmed in due course.


The workshop programme is available here

Registration is through the Cambridge University booking system.
