PLEASE CIRCULATE WIDELY. APOLOGIES FOR CROSS POSTINGS.
Dear colleagues and friends,
Further to our recent announcement of the 2015 Feminist and Women’s Studies Association (FWSA) conference I am writing as Co-Chair (with Kate Sang) of FWSA to announce two opportunities to serve on the FWSA executive committee. The FWSA executive takes decisions on the management and direction of the FWSA. More information here http://fwsablog.org.uk/about/executive-committee/
The two opportunities are:
1. Membership officer – Responsible for overseeing membership of the association, maintaining records and engaging in the strategic management of the FWSA
2. Essay competition officer – Managing the annual FWSA essay prize and editing the association special issue.
For both roles, eligibility is based on FWSA membership and residence is preferred in UK or Ireland. Both roles will have to shadow the current outgoing officers for a short period before taking this on independently.
It will be nice to see more early career feminist scholars represented in the executive.
Please get in touch with me or Kate if you wish to discuss this further.
The FWSA is a UK-based network promoting feminist research and teaching, and women’s studies nationally and internationally. Through its executive committee, the FWSA is involved in developing policy on issues of central importance to feminist scholars in further and higher education, supporting postgraduate events and enabling feminist research. Committed to raising awareness of women’s studies, feminist research and women-related issues in secondary and tertiary education, the FWSA liaise regularly with other gender-related research and community networks as well as with policy groups.
