Malinda Smith at the FedCan Equity Matters blog has posted a great essay on equity issues in the academy. She brings together StatsCan data with studies from the corporate sector and recent studies on Canadian universities to highlight issues of gender and race. Their are links through the post to these studies and statistics.
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.
