The SSAGC aims to work with postgraduate students in the Arts and Social Sciences to deliver appropriate services and facilities. We always welcome your feedback and ideas on any topic.
Dr Rosemary Pearce
Graduate School Researcher Training and Development Team
Hello - I am the member of the Graduate School Researcher Training and Development Team with specific responsibility for supporting training and development activities in the SSAGC. In 2018 I completed my doctorate in the American and Canadian Studies Department here at the University of Nottingham. My thesis is entitled, “Mobilised emotions: Public Transportation in the Jim Crow Era, 1896 – 1964,” and sought to examine how feelings evoked by racial conflict on public transportation helped to fuel the black rights movement that demanded the end of the segregated system. As well having undertaken a wide variety of teaching, research, and administrative roles across the University since coming here for my Masters in 2009, I have also worked in publishing.
I look forward to meeting you at one of our courses or in the Social Sciences and Arts Graduate Centre.
SSAGC Graduate Centre Coordinator
Hello! I am the SSAGC coordinator as well as a third-year PhD student in the School of Geography. The (extremely long!) current title of my PhD project is “Geographies of anti-racist, feminist and LGBTQIA squatting in Brixton, south London: the Brixton Black Women’s Group, the Brixton Gay Community, the ‘Rebel Dykes’, Queeruption and the House of Brag”. In between my studies I have worked in publishing and publicity, and I am currently also doing some teaching here at the university.
My role in the SSAGC is to make sure that everything is running smoothly and to make the Centre a great place for socialising and studying. I also help run both academic and social events throughout the year (and I will be keeping everyone informed via the Centre’s Facebook page, so do follow it!).
I am in the Centre for a couple of hours every day (usually 13:30 - 15:30 on Mondays, 9:45 - 11:45 Tuesday - Friday) and you are very welcome to drop in to my office if you have any questions or ideas on how to improve the Centre. I look forward to meeting you!
