Announcement of FWSA vacancies in the executive committee


Dear colleagues and friends,

Further to our recent announcement of the 2015 Feminist and Women's Studies
Association (FWSA) conference

I am writing as Co-Chair (with Kate Sang) of FWSA to announce two
opportunities to serve on the FWSA executive committee. The FWSA executive
takes decisions on the management and direction of the FWSA. More
information here

1. Membership officer - Responsible for overseeing membership of the
association, maintaining records and engaging in the strategic management
of the FWSA

2. Essay competition officer - Managing the annual FWSA essay prize and
editing the association special issue.

For both roles, eligibility is based on FWSA membership and residence in UK
or Ireland. Both roles will have to shadow the current outgoing officers
for a short period before taking this on independently.

It will be nice to see more early career feminist scholars represented in
the executive. Please get in touch with Ayona Datta (
or Kate Sang ( if you wish to discuss this further.

The* FWSA <>*is a UK-based network promoting feminist
research and teaching, and women's studies nationally and internationally.
Through its executive committee, the FWSA is involved in developing policy
on issues of central importance to feminist scholars in further and higher
education, supporting postgraduate events and enabling feminist
research. Committed to raising awareness of women's studies, feminist
research and women-related issues in secondary and tertiary education, the
FWSA liaises regularly with other gender-related research and community
networks as well as with policy groups.

Best wishes
