The new UKLA Postgraduate Student Research Network is led by Lucy Taylor and Cara Doxey. The network is open to all UKLA members who are currently engaged in Masters or doctoral research. We hope that the network will provide a valuable opportunity for postgraduate student researchers to share perspectives and experiences and to develop useful alliances across institutions, both in the UK and elsewhere.
At present the group has a closed Facebook group where members can share ideas and information, ask questions and offer support. Meetings also take place face to face at conferences, and members of the group are encouraged to take part in the Postgraduate Research Slam at the UKLA International Conference.
The network offers a great opportunity to connect with people who have similar research interests and to be part of ongoing conversations about new directions and developments in literacy research.
