Boundary Objects - ECR support network

Boundary Objects was founded in the summer of 2013 by a group of recent PhD graduates. Life outside of the Ivory Tower can be difficult: publishing research, finding work, staying in the academic ‘loop’. We decided that we A support group can make all of these challenges easier. Boundary Objects is an international network for early career researchers working with museums and collections, run by and for its members. It is free of any institutional affiliation, allowing it to operate purely in the interests of its members.

Boundary Objects support members in three key ways:

By facilitating research and collaboration by providing opportunities online and in person, for  members to meet, share ideas and develop new projects together;
by campaigning for the interests of early career researchers;
       by offering informal guidance, mentoring, a listening ear and a shoulder to cry on when academic life gets tough.  

There are many ways to get involved in Boundary Projects through joining in discussions on twitter @BoundaryObjects and through the blog which will be launched in the coming months.
