|12:00 pm-1:00 pm||Women Faculty Collective Brown Bag Lunch Series (HEC) Health Education Complex|
The next meeting of the Women Faculty Collective promises to be particularly dynamic, as speakers will raise some hard-hitting questions about gender bias in academia. Drawing on recent publications addressing "The War on Academic Women: Reflections on Postfeminism in the Neoliberal Academy" (attached) and "The Ivory Ceiling of Service Work," Dr. Jennifer Parker (Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and Professor of Psychology) and Dr. Desiree Rowe (Assistant Professor of Communication, and affiliate faculty in Women's and Gender Studies) will discuss cultural and institutional patterns that typically block women faculty members' career advancement and will offer suggestions for maneuvering successfully in university settings in part through greater awareness of these patterns.
