Call for Nominations: BAMS Postgraduate Representatives

2014 Election of Postgraduate Representatives on the British Association for Modernist Studies Executive Steering Committee

Nominees for two two-year postgraduate representative positions are sought from registered doctoral students who have completed their first year of study. The elected representatives will join Sarah Chadfield (RHUL) and Sophie Oliver (RHUL), who were elected at the beginning of 2014. The roles involve regular attendance at committee meetings (two to three times a year), administrative support for BAMS events (notably the annual postgraduate training symposium and the postgraduate conference New Work in Modernist Studies), maintenance of the membership database, information dissemination, and contribution to BAMS’ online presence. Candidates require a nomination from an existing member of BAMS and must themselves be members of the association. The final selection will be made through an on-line election process open to all BAMS members. Candidates are asked to submit a brief biography as well as a 250-word proposal outlining their vision for the future of BAMS, their suitability for the role, and their envisaged contribution to the association. The name of the nominator should be included in the proposal. Applications should be emailed to Rebecca Beasley no later than 31 October 2014. Information about the positions can be directed to: Rebecca Beasley (Chair) (rebecca.beasley@queens.ox.ac.uk) Alex Goody (Secretary) (agoody@brookes.ac.uk) or to the current postgraduate representatives: Sarah Chadfield (sarah.chadfield.2012@rhul.ac.uk) Chris Mourant (christopher.mourant@kcl.ac.uk) Sophie Oliver (sophie.oliver@rhul.ac.uk)
