Wall Colloquia Abroad

The Wall Colloquia Abroad is a unique program directed at enhancing relations with our international partners, increasing the international reputation of the Institute, and expanding opportunities for international research collaborations for Faculty Associates of the Institute. Like the International Research Roundtables held at the Peter Wall Institute, Wall Colloquia Abroad are small meetings to which scholars from a range of disciplines, from UBC and abroad, are brought together for a few days to develop and further research agendas on cutting edge topics. Instead of being held at the Institute, Wall Colloquia Abroad are held at one of our partner institutions: the Collège de France in Paris, France, the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study in Stellenbosch, South Africa, or the TUM Institute for Advanced Study in Munich, Germany. Holding the meetings in other parts of the world will enable key researchers to attend who might otherwise not be able to do so. 

Funding of up to $20,000 is provided for a Colloquia Abroad, plus up to an additional $5,000 to assist UBC researchers to attend. A Wall Institute Faculty Associate will be awarded the funding as Principal Investigator.

The next deadline for Wall Colloquia Abroad applications is May 1, 2017.  Faculty Associates of the Institute interested in organizing a Wall Colloquia Abroad should contact the Program Manager at internationalprograms@pwias.ubc.ca.
