In November 2016, the Antislavery Usable Past project will team up with the Utrecht Network to deliver a five-day interdisciplinary PhD School focused on antislavery and trafficking.
The School is open to any PhD candidate whose dissertation is focused on issues of slavery, antislavery, or trafficking; be it historical or contemporary. The School will enable PhD candidates to develop a network of early career scholars; learn practical academic skills and multi- and inter -disciplinary methods; and engage with leading scholars in the field.
The PhD School in Antislavery and Trafficking will take place in the picturesque Bohemian City of Brno, Czech Republic, at Masaryk University. It includes a one-day field trip to Vienna, Austria, to visit the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the agency tasked with the taking the lead on issues of trafficking internationally.
See the Utrecht Network website for more information and details of the application process. Members of the Antislavery Usable Past postgraduate research network are particularly welcome to apply.
