TaPRA Exec nominations now open
Nominations open until 28 October 2022 for Working Group Coordinator and Research Officer (Awards) on TaPRA Executive Committee
We are currently seeking nominations for two vitally important roles on the TaPRA Executive Committee: Working Group Coordinator and Research Officer (Awards).
Both job descriptions are available to download here (below the TaPRA Constitution): http://tapra.org/constitution/.
You can make nominations here (making it clear which role the nomination is for): http://tapra.org/election-nomination-open/.
We welcome role-share nominations and advocate for collaborative working models, in recognition of both our workloads in the HE sector and the power of coalitional leadership.
Any TaPRA member may nominate for these roles and you are welcome to nominate yourself. Nominees should include a 300–500 word statement outlining their experience and interests, and what they would bring to the role.
Nominations close at 23.59 BST on 28 October 2022.
If there is more than one eligible nominee for each role, then a ballot of the TaPRA membership will be held as soon as possible.
The successful candidate/s for Working Group Coordinator will join the TaPRA Executive Committee immediately thereafter to work alongside Soudabeh Ananisarab. They will replace the previous Working Group Coordinator, Claire Hampton, who stepped down in September 2022.
The successful candidate/s for Research Officer (Awards) will join the TaPRA Executive Committee from 1 January 2023. They will replace the current Research Officer (Awards), Joslin McKinney, and take over the organisation of the 2023 TaPRA Awards processes after a suitable handover period.
TaPRA particularly welcomes nominations of colleagues at any career stage, particularly from Black and Global Majority communities, who have been historically marginalised in theatre and performance research.
If you have any questions about these roles, do not hesitate to contact the current role holders, and/or the Chairs or Vice-Chair: http://tapra.org/executive-committee/.
