Student Column: Calling for Student and Early Career Division and Interest Group Representatives

Posted By Julie Escurignan, U of Roehampton, Monday, December 4, 2017

Since the beginning of the academic year, the Student and Early Career Advisory Committee (SECAC) has been working to put together an up-to-date list of all Student and Early-Career Division & Interest Group Representatives (SECDR). Our goal is to make it available on our website so each and everyone of you can contact your Division(s)/Interest Group(s) representative(s) whenever you need to. The SECAC also plans on better involving all Student and Early Career Representatives into its processes, from decision making to writing in the newsletter.


SECDRs are students or early career scholars [i.e. who submitted their dissertation within the past two years] and members of the Division/Interest group. During their two-year term they participate in their Division/Interest group meetings and activities, all year long as well as during ICA annual conference. They focus on needs and opportunities related to SEC members, participate in organizing summer schools, preconferences, Blue Sky workshops, mentoring programs etc., and disseminate information to SEC members on behalf of the Division/Interest group


If our efforts have been successful most of the Student and Early Career Division and Interest Group Representatives are now known (See the list below).


If  a Division/IG isn't  represented or if you know about an error in the SECDR list, please contact us at:


From this year onward, it is required for every Division and Interest Group to have a Student and Early Career Representative. If your Division/Interest Group does not have a representative yet and you would like to apply, please email the Chair of your Division/Interest Group! 


It is compulsory for Students and Early Career Scholars to be represented in every Division/Interest Group. If you would like to serve your fellow Students and Early Career Scholars as well as ICA, do not hesitate to volunteer for the next election!
