We are the Birkbeck Institute Interns. Together, we will be working with the Birkbeck Institute for Social Research (BISR), the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities (BIH), and Birkbeck Gender and Sexuality (BiGS) and across the departments at Birkbeck to coordinate events, share the work of the Institutes, and bring together the annual Birkbeck Graduate Conference, which is organised by the Birkbeck Institute.
The Graduate Conference forms the centrepiece of our internship, and we’ll be working alongside students from all five Schools to create something inclusive, interdisciplinary, and inspirational. We will be overseeing the conference, which will be held in October 2019, from beginning to end: coming up with the conference theme, disseminating the call for papers and ensuring that graduates from across Birkbeck have the opportunity to participate in and meaningfully engage with the one-day event. We are currently recruiting for our Working Party to help organize the conference. If you a current PhD student at Birkbeck and are interested in joining please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are many other ways for Graduate Students to become involved in the activities of the Institutes:
- BIH and BISR both run training courses for PhD students – Full details of upcoming events
- BiGS is hosting a Queer Feminist Reading Group for Birkbeck Graduate Students – full details
