Are you passionate about communicating HSTM to a wide range of audiences? Do you want to be involved in funding fantastic projects that promote the field? Would you like to help shape how the British Society for the History of Science (BSHS) supports postgraduate researchers? Then this is the role for you!

 

The BSHS is looking for a postgraduate representative to join the Outreach and Engagement Committee (OEC). The OEC coordinates and directs the Society’s efforts to promote the understanding of the history of science, technology and medicine in a wide range of contexts, both formal and informal. We do this through a variety of public events, supporting researchers to work with museums, festivals and schools, and through the provision of grants and awards. The committee also works to foster relationships between universities, museums and other institutions concerned with public engagement. You can find out more about the OEC here.

 

This a fantastic opportunity to represent the postgraduate community with scholars and practitioners from across the academic and cultural sectors. The OEC meets three times a year (funding is available for travel) and discuss funding applications and opportunities over email.

If you are interested to be involved, please email rachel.boon@postgrad.manchester.ac.uk with a statement covering the following (maximum 500 words each): 

  • Describe your experience of delivering and/or developing outreach and engagement activities.
  • How do you think the Outreach and Engagement Committee could better support HSTM postgraduates?

The deadline for this application is Friday 5 July.
