Colonialism and its Aftermath

Events, Conferences & Symposia

CAIA holds work-in-progress seminars for its members once a year. These seminars are a forum for staff, post graduates and industry partners to present, discuss and share research. They are often run in conjunction with local cultural institutions or community groups interested in developing partnerships with CAIA and the University.

CAIA holds smaller, more intimate Winter Symposia in the years in which we do not organise a large conference. These events are located in different, non-university spaces, and encourage conversations between academics and disciplines on specific themes.
