Gender in the Canadian Academy
Book Workshop – Call for Chapters
Deadline for Submission: October 1, 2019
Dr. Rachael Johnstone (University of Waterloo) and Dr. Bessma Momani (University of Waterloo) are pleased to invite chapter proposals for a peer-reviewed book on gender in Canadian academia. This collection will feature evidence-based, Canadian focused work on all aspects of gender in academia, from undergraduate degrees through to high level administration. The aim of the book is to create a pool of Canada-specific data to lay the groundwork for substantive policy change in this area. This interdisciplinary collection will feature the work of prominent academics, including Malinda Smith (University of Alberta), Sandra Acker (University of Toronto), and Louise Forsyth (University of Saskatchewan). We are looking for additional chapters to workshop at a two-day conference at the Balsillie School of International Affairs in Waterloo, Ontario, on May 6-7, 2020. Selected participants will be provided with two nights of accommodation, food, and return, in-Canada flights to attend the workshop.
We are especially interested in chapters looking at:
- Gender in STEM
- EDI (Equity, Diversity & Inclusion) Programs
- Gender in undergraduate and graduate education
- Gender in university administration and management
- Gender and teaching evaluations
- Gender in job applications
- Gender and tenure
- Gender and university provosts and/or presidents
- We also welcome innovative topics not mentioned above.
To apply, please submit the following documents by October 1, 2019 to our project manager, Kersty Kearney (email@example.com), in one PDF document with the subject header “Gender in Academia”:
- An abstract of 500-700 words (If selected, we will ask you to submit a draft 6000-7000 word chapter by April 15, 2020)
Keynote Speaker: Nobel Laureate Dr. Donna Strickland
On Wednesday, May 7th, 2020, Dr. Strickland will sit down for a public interview to discuss a range of issues affecting women in academia. This interview will be an open event for the public, with reserved seating for workshop participants.
