Cambridge Global Challenges


The Consortium for the Global South invites you to participate in the first of its Tricontinental Tea Seminars. This informal series is intended to connect researchers working in different departments and disciplines within the University departments, to share knowledge, and to explore the potential for future collaborative projects.

The event will take the following format:

  • 4.00-5.30pm: Brief presentations (5-10 minutes) by individual researchers on their areas of interest
  • 5.30-6.00pm: Tea and informal connections
  • 6.00-6.30pm: Roundtable discussion on emerging themes and potential collaborative projects

If you are a lecturer or a postdoctoral researcher at Cambridge working on social, political, ethical or philosophical questions relating to science or technology in the Global South, we would be very keen to hear about your research. Please register your interest in participating by emailing Joanna Page ( by 3 November, with your departmental affiliation and a brief sentence or two outlining your main interests in the area.

Postgraduate students and any others who would like to learn about the range of research being undertaken at Cambridge on this topic are also very welcome to attend if there are spaces available, and should register in the same way by 24 November at the latest, please.
