Gateways, Gates, and Gatekeeping: Mentoring and Diversity as a Feminist Future 2012 CCCC FEMINIST WORKSHOP
full name / name of organization:
2012 CCCC Feminist Workshop
March 21st, 2012, St. Louis, Missouri
This year’s workshop is designed to provide time and space for mentoring conversations among experts, advanced scholars, assistant professors, adjunct faculty, and graduate students as they negotiate various gateways—to tenure, publication, collaboration, pedagogical innovation, interdisciplinarity, graduation, and more.
As in past years, the 2012 Workshop will run all day Wednesday, with plenary speakers in the morning and collaborative roundtables in the afternoon.
Morning Plenary Speakers will focus on mentoring and diversity in feminist studies; individual presentations will be followed by time for questions and conversation.
• Roxanne Mountford, “Feminist Models for Mentoring Relationships”
Afternoon Working Groups will provide a host of mentoring opportunities for participants. Groups will meet to discuss various challenges, share research ideas, provide feedback on potential publications, or strategize ways of addressing professional and classroom problems. Participants will have the opportunity to focus on their own professional interests as well as to engage in discussions that will help to critique and diversify feminist scholarship and mentoring models.
We invite proposals to participate in these afternoon working groups. The make up of the groups will depend on participant interests and goals.
Please submit a 250-word proposal or abstract (1 page double-spaced) for one of the following workshops, discussion groups, or roundtables:
Questions and Suggestions Discussion Groups
