Network News

  • The PGRNS blog is starting to get on its feet. Right now we are focused on keeping a running list of events and conferences as well as provide a way for members to share their work and get in touch. To that end we post all of our newsletters to the blog. We also have a google calendar with reminders about deadlines for cfps and funding opportunities. We have a page marked out for ‘making connections’. We would like to use this page to post bios of our members with information about where they study and the kind of research they are carrying out. If you would like to have your bio included please email it to us at along with a photo if you’d like that included as well. Bios should be approximately 150-200 words.
