Blogger Historiann provides a brief update on the tenure debacle at DePaul University in Chicago. If you haven’t been keeping up with this news, it seems that a review of tenure stats reveals that 100% of white faculty members have been receiving tenure while 50% of non-white faculty receive tenure.
Welcome to the C-SWIG site!
Our next meeting is January 18th from 7-9pm.
This month we discuss conferences. What is the value of attending conferences? How do you prepare a conference paper? Come share and learn presentation strategies, how to handle questions, how to navigate the cult of personality at academic conferences, and session jumping. Importantly, we will ask (and answer!) how to have a dialogue within a conference session!
This meeting is just in time for the upcoming AAG! If you've never been to an academic conference, this is a great chance for demystification. If you're an old hand at conferences, please come share your wisdom, tips, and rants.
Hook and Eye, a Canadian feminist academic blog, provides some thoughtful opinion pieces on conference participation.
