The IGA is looking for a new graduate student representative! This is an exciting opportunity to become a spokesperson for a thriving postgraduate network, within the rich and welcoming culture of the international Gothic Studies community. Ideally, this representative would be from the UK or Ireland, to join our continuing North American and European reps.

This is a two-year position, focused on supporting and building the IGA postgrad community. Regular responsibilities include recruiting bloggers and managing the IGA postgrad blog, and keeping the Facebook page and Twitter feed active and engaged.
