The PG CWWN is a free and thriving research community, and we invite all postgraduate students whose research is focused on the work of contemporary women writers to get involved. The network hosts a wide variety of networking and training events for PGRs and ECRs working in the field of contemporary women’s writing, including the flagship biennial conference. You can find out more about the network, including details of our previous events on the website: www.pgcwwn.org.
The PG CWWN is managed by a group of PhD candidates at a variety of institutions, in the UK and in Europe. By its very nature as a postgraduate-led network, the steering group of the PG CWWN is a lively and motivated team of postgraduate researchers in both the early and latter stages of their doctoral study. At the network’s centre is a passion for contemporary women’s writing, and we therefore seek to bring together a community of emerging scholars from around the world who are engaged in researching this field in various different forms.
We are currently looking to recruit a new steering group member who can be part of a proactive team to continue the work of the PG CWWN (including the website, mailing lists and social media presence), and who will develop new activities and relationships to further the community, as well as work as part of the group to deliver forthcoming conferences and events including the next biennial conference in 2017.
If you are interested in joining then please send an email with a cover letter outlining why you would like to join the steering group and what you think you can bring to the network, as well as a current academic CV, to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11th September 2015. You can find out more about the network by visiting our website but if you wish to make any informal enquiries then please do not hesitate to contact us on the above email address. We look forward to hearing from you!
