ALL ARE WELCOME

The 2012-2013 Gender & STEAM Research Group fall semester monthly meetings are Sept. 12, Oct. 17, Nov. 14, & Dec. 5 on Wednesdays, 5:30-7:00 p.m. at 207 Arts Cottage.

Gender representation and underrepresentation research in science, engineering, arts, technology, and math (i.e., STEAM) cuts across the humanities, arts, and sciences. As such, it is often challenging to keep up-to-date with the state of research and publishing in the many fields in which such work is conducted. Since 2006, a transdisciplinary research group at Penn State University has met monthly to provide support and feedback to new and emerging researchers working in the broad area of intersectionality (e.g., of gender and race, ethnicity, sexuality, age, socio-economic class, etc.) and STEAM. Participants discuss research ideas, solicit advice on sources of funding, submit manuscripts in process for preliminary review, and share tips on publication outlets. Pedagogical issues related to this subject matter are also discussed. Participants share knowledge in furtherance of each others' research and publishing agendas. This research group also serves as a vehicle for creating a transdisciplinary community of scholars. ALL ARE WELCOME to come to some or all meetings, to share in process writing, or to attend any portion of a meeting.

The first meeting for the fall semester on Sept. 12 will be for planning whose paper will be discussed at each of the fall meetings.

Conveners include faculty from the College of Liberal Arts, College of Arts & Architecture, & the College of Information Sciences & Technology. Conveners are:

Eileen Trauth: Professor of Information Sciences & Technology and Women's Studies
Karen Keifer-Boyd: Professor of Art Education and Women's Studies
Jennifer Wagner-Lawlor: Acting  Head of Women's Studies; Associate Professor of Women's Studies and English
