Forum for Early Career Researchers

Dates
Wednesday 8th March 2017 (16:00-18:00)

This is a space for free and open discussion among early career researchers in the humanities and social sciences from around the West Midlands region. From post-grads finishing up, to those just starting in permanent jobs, we want to share experiences, build solidarity, and develop strategies for individual and collective action.

For the post-2008 cohort, academia is more precarious than ever. It is a high-stress, and often low-support environment, which can be isolating and alienating. We want to find ways to combat that—starting with bringing folks together. This session will feature participants who have recently achieved success, whether in landing a permanent job, or in using collective action to win concessions from their university administration. But we want to hear your stories and your ideas too.

Let us know if you plan to come along by emailing  brihc@contacts.bham.ac.uk and get links to recommended reading. See you there!
