ASFS is committed to supporting postgraduate students working in all areas of French Studies. Postgraduate students are encouraged to attend the annual conference, at a reduced rate, to present their work and to attend the postgraduate workshop; this is led by the Postgraduate Officer and members of the Organizing Committee and topics rotate according to students’ interests.
The current Postgraduate Officer is Associate Professor Jacqueline Dutton, University of Melbourne. There is a lively community of postgraduate members who facilitate exchange, support and networking, which is currently presided over by Sarah Reed, University of Adelaide and Clara Sitbon, University of Newcastle.
There is a Facebook group for ASFS Postgrads where you can get in touch with students in French Studies across Australia. Search “Australian Society for French Studies” on Facebook or go to: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2445208129/
