The email below announces this year’s “Negotiating the Ideal Faculty Position” workshop run by Rice University’s ADVANCE program. I’ve heard great things about this workshop and they’ve run it for several years. In fact, I applied two years running and didn’t get in, so it must be popular for a reason. Dear Colleague: A recent…

Do you do research on gender and engineering or engineering education? Do you want to talk with cool European researchers about your and their research? Want to fly to Europe for free? Consider applying for the opportunity below the fold — there are only a couple days left to apply (April 13 is the deadline)…

This announcement just in: the organization of a US-Europe workshop on research on gender in engineering education. More information below the fold; applications are due April 13, in just over 2 weeks!

Coming home and leaving again

So I got back Sunday night from a workshop at Arizona State University on Engineering and Science Ethics Education. The goal of the workshop was to explore the possibilities for blending microethics and macroethics in graduate engineering and science education; we spent 2 days talking about the history of such efforts, what micro and macro…

Acmegirl and DLee facilitated a ScienceOnline2009 session about race and science, stemming from what happened last year where the session on gender and race really focused on gender and not race. I’ve finally written up my notes, and what follows is a rough summary of the conversation. For those who attended, please feel free to…

So I’ve said over there on the sidebar that I blog at the intersection of women’s studies and engineering. I confess I bet Science Woman was hoping I’d do more of that than I have so far, and I was hoping to too. But I’ve been hobbled by the idea that I should publish it…

Thanks so much to Propter Doc for helping me moderate the Transitions session at ScienceOnline09. Our goal for the session was to draft a list of “best practices” for handling your online presence as you move through personal and professional transitions in the off-line world. Thanks to all the participants in the session for offering…

Snapshots of ScienceOnline09

The real world intervened (i.e., I got a nasty cold) with my best intentions to provide more thorough blogging coverage of the wonderful conference (hi everyone!). Maybe someday I’ll manage to work my thoughts from the sessions into coherent blog posts, but I know I’m pretty bad about promising and not delivering results (hello, the…

Gender and science session – Alice, Zuska, and Abel Non-chronological note-taking from a great session. What is an ally? How do you become an ally? You can be an ally for any oppressed group. (http://partnersinchange.umich.edu/page1_2.html) Be an ally all the time, not just in front of the person to whom you are allied. (Zuska) There…

Open Access publishing at ScienceOnline 2009

So ScienceWoman and I will be sharing live-blogging duties today, at least until our batteries give out. We’re both starting at the Open Access publishing session, although I was also intrigued by Peggy Kolm’s session about science fiction on science blogs. I’ll have to catch up with her later. Also, please note: this is liveblogging.…
