CSWS Writing Workshop for Women Faculty

Post date: 01 October 2010
Deadline: 31 January 2011

The Center for the Study of Women in Society will hold its second annual writing and promotion workshops for women faculty from 14-17 June 2011, with applications due January 31. Sponsored by CSWS and the University of Oregon Office of Academic Affairs, the workshops will be open to women faculty members whose research addresses the complexity of women’s lives and the intersecting nature of gender identities and inequalities. Designed for assistant and associate professors, the workshops run for four days and will consist of sessions that:

* allow participants to refine book chapters or journal articles to be included in their promotion packages
* allow participants to get feedback from peers in the workshop as well as designated external reviewers who are experts in participants’ fields
* allow post-tenure participants to discuss their post-tenure research agendas
* locate and access UO resources that support their research
* develop lateral resources for mentoring and collaboration.

Prior to the workshop, participants will read each other’s book chapters or journal articles. Participants are also expected to provide written feedback and additional peer review for members of their writing group.

A review committee will select participants based on their readiness and focus. By January 31, please send the following materials in “doc” format to Shirley Marc at csws@uoregon.edu:

* one-page statement about how you will benefit from this workshop
* CV
* copy of the book chapter or journal article you will workshop
* letter of support from a senior faculty member.

A maximum of eight junior faculty members and eight associate professors will be selected for the workshop.

Participants will receive $500 for their ASA accounts upon completion of the workshop.
