Alcohol Study Group is seeking co-convenor/s

The BSA Alcohol Study Group is seeking one or two new co-convenors with a passion for sociological and interdisciplinary research on alcohol consumption and drinking cultures.

The role of the Alcohol Study Group convenor includes:

  • Liaising with the BSA to organise events (such as seminars, workshops and reading groups).
  • Maintaining an accurate membership list and using appropriate communications (such as JiscMail and Twitter) to share information with members.
  • Coordinating the Alcohol Study Group’s participation in the BSA annual conference.
  • Acting as an occasional contact for media requests to the BSA relating to alcohol and related issues.
  • 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.

Postgraduate and Early Career Researchers are particularly welcome to apply. Please note that convenors must be paid up members of the BSA and sign the BSA Study Group Terms of Reference.

Co-convening the Study Group is a really excellent opportunity to meet others with an interest in the sociology of alcohol, to organise workshops and invite speakers in areas which are of particular interest to you, and to shape the development of the field.

Please email the convenors by Friday, 23 February with a brief statement outlining your suitability for the role and why you are interested in the post. We welcome informal enquiries.
