What is it?
The Network is for individual Masters, doctoral and post-doctoral students based in Europe, sharing encouragement through e-resources, readings, conferences and personal connections.
With many contributors, it is co-ordinated on our behalf by Anja Lijcklama à Nijeholt, a Dutch graduate of Leiden University who has also co-ordinated church-based international student ministry and later completed four years of theological postgraduate study in London. Anja also helps to coordinate the FEUER Academic Speakers' Network
, and Forming a Christian Mind, Cambridge.
- Receive regular term-time emails, with blog-style material, PDF articles, discussion questions, and reflections from academics across Europe in different disciplines. You can read these on your own, or meet with a friend or two to discuss them together. Similar material is being studied and discussed each week by a Fellows programme of Christian PhD students in Cambridge and by other network members across Europe.
- Connect at network conferences: currently our term-time hub gatherings take place at Forming a Christian Mind in Cambridge, and at the end of the academic year members are invited to a residential weekend at a different European location, for encouragement to discuss the key ideas and questions raised by the network readings.
- Get in touch with other members near you: if you'd like to get together with other Christian postgrads near you to support one another, or perhaps to start an Associated group, we can help put you in touch with others in the network nearby who may be interested.
