The 8th semi-annual Gender, Science, and Organizations Writing Workshop will take place from 8 am to 5 pm on Friday, August 15th 2014 the day before the annual meeting for the American Sociological Association in San Francisco. The workshop is targeted at sociologists who are already doing research on studies of gender & academic careers, scientific workplace organizations, organizational transformations to promote gender equality, etc. We are a growing, loosely organized group of sociologists who focus on science as a workplace and many workshop participants work on NSF-funded ADVANCE research projects.
The purpose of the workshop is to: 1) network with other scholars conducting research on similar topics and 2) write. As a group, we will talk about our current projects. This will provide workshop participants with the information necessary to explore potential collaborative projects. There will also be two large designated blocks of time for writing. All interested sociologists are welcome to join the writing workshop. Send an email to Christina Falci (firstname.lastname@example.org) to reserve your spot in the workshop.
Your ASA conference fees will cover the room cost for the writing workshop. Participants need to bring a laptop computer (maybe an extension cord) and are encouraged to bring snacks to share. We will coordinate a place to have lunch during and dinner after the workshop (participants pay for their own meals; but attendance at meals is not essential for participation in the workshop).
