We are looking for colleagues to join our Higher Education Committee

The English Association invites nominations from the subject community to fill three new positions on its HE Committee. We are looking for new members with experience of leadership in the discipline, and demonstrable commitment to English Studies; this includes leadership shown by early career academics. A track record of teaching and research or scholarship in English Language/Linguistics, creative writing, world literatures, and interdisciplinarity may be an advantage. We especially welcome applications from BAME colleagues.

The committee meets twice yearly. Travel expenses are covered. We work alongside University English and NAWE (National Association of Writers in Education) supporting and promoting English Studies in Higher Education. Tenure is for five years.

Please contact Professor Jennifer Richards if you have queries about the role: Jennifer.Richards@ncl.ac.uk.

Please send your cv and a short statement (200 words), explaining what you might bring to the committee, to the Chief Executive Officer of the English Association Dr Rebecca Fisher by Thursday 12th December 5pm: Rebecca.Fisher@leicester.ac.uk.
