Recently, a TASA PhD Student member had a book chapter published; Leah Williams Veazey: ‘Mothering in the Digital Diaspora” in Taking the Village Online: Mothers, Motherhood and Social Media (Demeter Press, 2016)
Postgraduate students can publish before they complete their studies and are awarded their doctorate. Some students publish something as the soul author while others team up with their supervisor or another established academic in the same field. The type of publications PhD students have been successful with include blog posts and in other online platforms, such as The Conversation, as well as journal articles. Recently, Kirsty, a PhD student member of TASA, had an article published in Pursuit, an online Melbourne University multi-media platform, showcasing the latest research and opinion from world-leading experts. You can access Kirsty’s article below:

Why not test the waters by starting with a blog post. You could submit your article to the TASA Office and have it posted on this blog as well as on the main TASA blog. Oh, and don’t forget to submit all of your publications to the TASA Office so that they can be included in the weekly newsletter. It gets your name out there:-)
