Graduate and Early Career Caucus Interest Meeting

Graduate students and early career scholars are invited to attend a virtual interest meeting on the formation of a Graduate and Early Career Caucus under the aegis of the North American Conference on British Studies. The meeting will take place Friday, January 22, at 12:30pm EST. This initiative hopes to draw on the established NACBS network and the accessibility of Zoom technology to foster a greater sense of community among emerging scholars in the field of British Studies (broadly defined). The meeting will be a space to gauge interest in establishing such a group and to discuss the various types of programming it might provide to graduate and early career scholars. This may include practical workshops on teaching, publishing, grant-writing, career diversity, etc., as well as virtual Q&A sessions with established scholars in the field. The group could also offer a forum for discussing graduate and early career concerns and communicating them to the NACBS Council as necessary. Most importantly, it will be a way for the field’s emerging scholars to connect with one another-- virtually for now, but hopefully in-person at conferences and archives in the future.

Register for the interest meeting here to receive the Zoom link. This meeting is being organized by two graduate student members of NACBS. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments at meg17g@my.fsu.edu and alison.hight@rutgers.edu. We hope to see you there!
