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;
- An annual conference-style event exclusively for PGN members;
- A funding competition for organising postgraduate events;
- A ‘meet the editors’ session at the BISA Annual Conference;
- A series of careers and professional development events for members.
