Hi I'm Amanda. I'm based in Australia, but plan to move to the UK in the next year (I have joint-citizenship).

I work as a professional copy-editor and mostly edit quasi-scientific publications produced by government departments. I am doing a GradCert in Editing and Publishing as an external student at University of Southern Queensland. Once I get to the UK I plan to do an MA in creative writing.

I've edited one PhD and may do more of this once I arrive in UK. Not sure as yet.

Hi I am Mickey K.

Also based in Australia, but I also plan to move to the UK (and I must disclose an interest here, Amanda is my partner). I have finished my PhD in the last year and I am currently engaged in trying to get dome of my research published as books. My main field of interest is Internet and telecommunications access, Cyberculture and more recently the political economy of higher education.

I look forward to meeting others in this goup.

Hi, as I started this group I should probably do an introduction (thanks to Amanda and Mike for getting the ball rolling).

I am a final year PhD student and tutor in politics in the UK. I am interested in most areas of politics and political philosophy, particularly with regard to the relationship between political ideas and political action. At the moment my research is focussed on Conservative politics in Britain, and the changing nature of English and British identities.

Come and join this group!

HI. I'm Aidan, and I am awaiting a much-delayed PhD viva on my thesis, Constructions of Masculinity in Welsh 1930s political novels. I teach English, Media, Politics, American Studies and Sociology as a visiting lecturer in a midlands university - looking for a permanent job! I'm also writing papers with an information scientist on political blogging and information sources.
I read obsessively, collect jangly indie vinyl, folk and contemporary classical music. My sport is fencing (Karl Marx was an epeeist,so fencing is a perfectly acceptable sport for lefties like me).
Nice to 'meet' you all,

I'm Robert, and I finished my PhD in 17th century English literature in 2004. Although I'm not currently teaching, I still do research, write, and go to conferences. I'm especially interested in meeting other PhDs who took "Plan B" professionally but are still active as scholars.

Hi, I am Trudy and ... this feels as if I should add now "and I am an alcoholic" or something to that effect ... but nah, just an ABD finishing her dissertation in social sciences, teaching, writing and going to conferences while working on getting on with "Plan B" ... I have been invited to apply to a few tenure track positions but I believe that is not meant for me, as I don't want teaching to be the core of my working life ... so that's moi, for now.
