The BSA Food Study Group is seeking one or two new co-convenors with a passion for encouraging the sociological analysis of food, fostering dialogue across disciplines and promoting engagement beyond academia.
The role of the Food Study Group convenor includes:
- Liaising with the BSA to organise events (such as seminars, workshops and reading groups) throughout the UK and the international Food & Society conference (every two years).
- Coordinating the Food Study Groups participation in the BSA annual conference.
- Maintaining an accurate membership list and using the JiscMail e-news bulletin to share information with members.
- Participation in the annual Study Group Convenors’ meeting called by the BSA Board of Trustees to ensure that the Association continues to meet the needs of its study groups and vice versa.
Please note that convenors must be paid up members of the BSA and sign the BSA Study Group Terms of Reference. Further details about how Study Groups work and the duties of convenors can be seen here.
Co-convening the Study Group is a really excellent opportunity to meet others with an interest in the sociology of food and to shape the development of the field.
Please email the convenors by Friday, 15 September with a brief statement outlining your suitability for the role and why you are interested in the post. We welcome informal enquiries.
