The Society for Theatre Research’s (STR) New Researchers’ Network (NRN) is seeking enthusiastic theatre researchers to join its committee on a voluntary basis. The candidates will have the opportunity to assist with organising an exciting series of events, including study days, visits to sites of theatre-related significance and informal dinners to accompany the STR’s lecture series. The candidates will also have the opportunity to assist with the organisation of the NRN’s annual symposium and to the many other activities of the STR itself. The candidates may assist in promoting STR events, developing the STR’s website, running the LiveStreaming of lectures and utilising social media. This will be an excellent opportunity for any postgraduate student or early career academic looking to engage with a wide community of theatre scholars, practitioners and new researchers.
As current NRN committee members are spread across the UK and Ireland, working as a committee member will not be confined by geographical distance. However, we will need at least one applicant to be based in London. In any case, we seek applicants who are passionate about creating a proactive and supportive group for new researchers in drama, theatre, and performance studies.
If you are interested in this position, please email firstname.lastname@example.org stating your interest and suitability for a committee member position, as well as attaching a CV. We look forward to hearing from you all!
Very best wishes,
David, Chris, Madeleine, Emer, Claire, and Nora
The STR NRN Committee
