The aim of the Postgraduate Network (MeCCSA-PGN) is to bring together postgraduate students in media, communication and cultural studies from different intellectual traditions and cultural backgrounds in order to form research, and teaching and learning networks and also ensure peer support.
The Postgraduate Network’s goals are to:
- Situate postgraduate researchers in the national landscape of media, communication and cultural studies
- Provide a national forum where postgraduates can participate in workshops/seminars related to teaching, learning and research
- Bring together members of the postgraduate community in order to debate contemporary issues in media, communication and cultural studies
- Provide a supportive environment where postgraduates can establish valuable contacts for the future
The PGN also seeks to be a safe and inclusive space for all PGRs regardless of gender, race, sexuality, ethnicity, disability or religion. This is part of our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion. Our annual conferences and training events are open to all PGRs, and we seek to take deliberate steps to make everyone feel a sense of belonging, including providing accessibility requirements for those who may need them. Our Committee is also diverse and we remain open to suggestions on how we can be more of an inclusive Network.
MeCCSA-PGN was originally established with support from the now defunct Art Design Media Higher Education Academy Subject Centre (ADM-HEA).
