As the British Women Writers Association (BWWA) approaches its 30th anniversary in June 2022, we would like to invite interested scholars of the long 18th and 19th centuries to help us expand participation in the Association’s governance. Specifically, we invite applications to serve on our new Association Board.
The Association Board is the governing body of the BWWA and will contain nine members, in addition to the members of the Executive Committee and past Chairs. They are encouraged to attend the annual board meeting during the annual British Women Writers Conference (BWWC); they recruit potential conference hosts and promote the BWWC in professional venues; and they help solicit papers and/or organize panels for the annual conference. Association Board members will be appointed for 2021-22, and afterward will be elected to serve terms of a minimum of two years, and may stand for re-election.
If you are interested in serving on the Association Board, please send a letter of interest and your CV by December 20 to BWWA Co-President Roxanne Eberle: firstname.lastname@example.org.
