Early Career Academics Network


From 2016 to 2024 the Howard League coordinated an early career academics network, an online network intended for academics in their first post or postgraduate students aiming for academic or research post. We published a quarterly bulletin showcasing early career research. You can find details of the last bulletin below, or read through issues in the bulletin archive.
