Women’s Classical Committee UK workshop for mid-career women classicists - 12/12/2016, London (Engla
This event follows on from feedback received after the WCC UK launch event held at the Institute of Classical Studies in April 2016, which suggested a need for a workshop dedicated to discussion of issues and challenges that face women academics at mid-career. These may include decisions about whether and when to move institutions, questions around disciplinarity/interdisciplinarity and collaboration in research, expectations about international mobility and balancing this with family/caring duties, managing institutional expectations (which may be gendered) around types and levels of administrative service, taking on leadership positions, and strategies to tackle unconscious bias in the workplace. Those who register their interest in participating (registration link below) will be invited to fill in an online questionnaire, the results of which will inform the precise choice of topics for discussion sessions. We envisage that the day’s discussions will help to set priorities for resource development and future campaigns by the Women’s Classical Committee.
LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: King’s College London (Strand Campus) (London, England)
