Early Career Representatives

  • Joshua Fitzgerald (Faculty of History)
  • Georgina Wilson (Faculty of English)


The Assembly provides Early Career Researchers (ECR) with a platform from which to advocate for improved research culture, professional opportunities, and working conditions, as well as an academic and social network across which to share experiences and ideas. It is particularly focused on supporting ECR across the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (AHSS), and in making legible the crunch points and highlights of the hugely varied career paths to help change them for the better.

The Assembly is led by two early-career representatives who are always keen to hear from any early-career scholar, in any kind of post, from across the Schools of Art & Humanities or the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. They aim to represent and elevate ECR’s views and concerns to the highest academic levels in the Schools and beyond, building up the Assembly as a forum for change.

This Assembly launch is a great opportunity to meet you, explain what the Early Career representatives and the Assembly can offer, and listen to what you’d like to see changed in your working culture.

We’d be delighted to see you there!

Contact Joshua or Georgina for more details.



The AHSS ECR Assembly is supported by the School of the Humanities and Social Sciences & the School of Arts and Humanities, and involves collaboration with the University’s Postdoc Academy and Research Culture Team. The Assembly is hosted by the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH).
