About the MeCCSA Postgraduate Network Committee
The aim of the Postgraduate Network is to bring together postgraduate students in media, communication and cultural studies from different intellectual traditions and cultural backgrounds in order to form networks for research, teaching and learning, as well as ensure peer support.
The Postgraduate Network Committee is comprised of postgraduate students (at both Masters and Doctorate levels) based at universities across the UK. All positions are voluntary and offer excellent opportunities to contribute to enriching the postgraduate community as well as experience being part of the postgraduate arm of the UK’s association in the field of media, communication and cultural studies. Work carried out by the PGN Committee is mostly done remotely (via email, Skype, etc.), though the Committee is expected to attend the Annual General Meeting at our PGN conference (with the upcoming conference planned for September 2021).
If you have any questions about the MeCCSA Postgraduate Network Committee or the role of Vice Chair, please contact Sharon with the email address above.
We look forward to receiving your nominations and welcoming a new member to our passionate team.
