WASN Panel: Call for Expressions of Interest
The challenges of working in Higher Education have been particularly acute over the last two years. From the pandemic, to continuing industrial disputes over pensions, precarity and the race and gender pay gaps, as well as media exposure of some of the many instances of sexual harassment in Higher Education, gender continues to shape the practice of British American studies in profound ways.
This WASN sponsored panel offers a space for dialogue about the challenges and opportunities faced by all who identify women and all those marginalized along the gender spectrum. We are looking for expressions of interest on a particular theme for up to 5 minutes from WAAS members. We are looking for speakers who represent different parts of the sector (including independent scholars) and career stages (from postgraduate researchers to Professors). Panellists can speak to any theme, but WASN especially welcomes proposals which consider how gender intersects with race, sexuality, class and region to shape the experiences of those working in American Studies. WASN and BAAS members and/or conference delegates are eligible to apply to be a participant in this panel.
Please complete this short proposal form outlining the theme you would like to speak on by Friday 14 January 2022.
