The TaPRA postgraduate community is distinct from the Working Groups, being open to all postgraduates and early career researchers, regardless of field of study or membership of Working Groups. There is no need to “opt in” to the postgraduate community, and one can attend postgraduate events as well as participating in other Working Groups throughout the year.
The Postgraduate Committee aims to represent and respond to TaPRA’s postgraduate constituency and strives to develop a community which shares and fosters theatre and performance research. The Postgraduate Committee also endeavours to provide supportive environments for postgraduates interested in theatre and performance research to meet and interact, particularly during the annual conference and at an annual postgraduate symposium.
The Postgraduate Committee is also responsive to the needs of postgraduates pursuing theatre and performance research, and aims to provide topical speakers on contemporary issues that affect postgraduates within the UK.

Every year, TaPRA runs a Postgraduate Essay Prize (http://tapra.org/postgraduate-essay-prize/). All entrants
receive peer feedback on their submission. The prize includes the opportunity to be mentored towards publication in a major academic journal.
