About Postgraduate Network (PGN)

Our aims are fourfold:

  • To represent the interests of BISA postgraduate and early-career members;
  • To provide training opportunities for postgraduates and ECRs to enhance your collaborative, learning, researching, and teaching skills;
  • To bring together postgraduates and ECRs from different intellectual traditions and cultural backgrounds to form research, teaching and support networks;
  • To encourage an active postgraduate and ECR community that engages with the broader academic community and BISA members at various stages in their careers.

Each year we organise several events including:

  • PGN only panels at the BISA annual conference;
  • A PhD workshop;
  • A funding competition for organising postgraduate events;
  • A ‘meet the editors’ session at the BISA Annual Conference.
