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. We are looking for one representative from Europe to join our currents representatives.
The IGA graduate student representative 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. There is scope for developing other plans for growing the network, such as conference events for postgrads. The new rep will be joining Dana Alex and Caitlin Duffy, who are our current IGA postgrad reps.
To apply, email a short statement about why you want to be a rep and what you would do with the position to the IGA co-presidents Justin Edwards (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Karen Macfarlane (Karen.MacFarlane@msvu.ca) by December 15 2019.
