As postgraduate representatives, the main questions we receive from BAMS members are about accessing information: How do I write a conference abstract? Which journal should I submit to? Do you know anyone who could help me with my postdoc application? These inquiries can be difficult to field, because the answers are various and slippery.
We find the best way to approach these questions are tangible examples: providing someone with a conference abstract, a list of journals, or a successful postdoc application. As such, BAMS has crowdsourced example documents from those working across the broad field of modernist studies that we hope will allow scholars of all stripes to easily access information that will help them prepare for their academic careers.
These materials are contained below. Please note, when reading the documents we have removed sensitive personal information and some information pertaining to specific projects. Each redaction is marked by parenthesis containing the kind of information that is removed: [Name] for instance.
We are incredibly grateful to all who submitted and will be updating this resource pack with more documents as they arrive. If you would like to submit, see our guidelines here.
We have compiled a list of relevant journals within and adjacent to modernist studies here. This is a live document. We encourage submissions.
