TWQ Global South Colloquium Fund
Supporting Career Development in International Studies
Third World Quarterly, in partnership with Routledge, Taylor & Francis, are delighted to announce the launch of the TWQ Global South Colloquium Fund (GSCF).
Third World Quarterly is committed to supporting colleagues in their career development, a significant part of which is travelling to conferences and workshops, as well as running events. Since its inception, Third World Quarterly has been particularly keen to encourage transnational and regional cooperation to ensure diverse debates at the highest levels of academic research. Third World Quarterly recognises the important networking and intellectual opportunities that event attendance affords but is aware of the often-inhibitive financial demands of doing so.
As such, the TWQ GSCF offers financial support for travel to or attendance of conferences or workshops relating to the research in International Studies, Political Science, Development Studies or Area Studies.
- major international conferences (such as ISA)
- one-day conferences, seminars and symposia
- postgraduate workshops
In addition, the Colloquium Fund also offers the possibility of sponsorship for (smaller) events which seek to further the debate, discussion and dissemination of ideas in International Studies on the global stage.
To express an interest in applying to the fund, please email Alison Campbell:
The TWQ GSCF seeks, wherever possible, to cover the total amount of support requested, but may only be able to offer partial support.
Third World Quarterly
Third World Quarterly (TWQ) is the leading journal of scholarship and policy in the field of international studies. For almost four decades it has set the agenda on development discourses of the global debate. As the most influential academic journal covering the emerging worlds, TWQ is at the forefront of analysis and commentary on fundamental issues of global concern. TWQ is a peer-reviewed journal that looks beyond strict "development studies", providing an alternative and over-arching reflective analysis of micro-economic and grassroot efforts of development practitioners and planners. It furnishes expert insight into crucial issues before they impinge upon global media attention. The journal acts as an almanac linking the academic terrains of the various contemporary area studies - African, Asian, Latin American and Middle Eastern - in an interdisciplinary manner with the publication of informative, innovative and investigative articles. Contributions are rigorously assessed by regional experts.
