The MeCCSA Postgraduate Network (PGN) is calling for nominations from postgraduate students (Masters and PhD) interested in joining the PGN Executive Committee for the 2022/2023 academic year.

About the MeCCSA Postgraduate Network Committee

The aim of the Postgraduate Network is to bring together postgraduate students in media, communication and cultural studies from different intellectual traditions and cultural backgrounds in order to form networks for research, teaching, and learning, as well as ensure peer support. 

The Postgraduate Network Committee comprises postgraduate students (at both Masters and Doctorate levels) based at universities across the UK. All positions are voluntary and offer excellent opportunities to contribute to enriching the postgraduate community as well as experience being part of the postgraduate arm of the UK’s association in the field of media, communication, and cultural studies.
