Cumberland Colloquia Scheme

Cumberland Lodge offers PhD students and early career researchers a platform to shape ethical debate through its annual Cumberland Colloquia Scheme, and applications to host the autumn 2018 Colloquium are now open.

The Cumberland Colloquia Scheme gives PGRs and ECRs the opportunity to design and run a one-day interdisciplinary conference with the support of the Cumberland Lodge team.  Since we established the scheme in 2012, the subjects discussed have been incredibly varied, yet consistently seek to address topical issues facing today’s society.  Our two most recent colloquia titles are listed below:

  • Social Cohesion in Times of Uncertainty, September 2017
  • Population Ethics: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Birth and Death, September 2016

We particularly welcome applications which relate to identities and belonging.  The successful applicants can expect to host their event in autumn 2018.

Closing date for applications: 27th October 2017
