How can we present politically- or publicly-engaged research in job
interviews and in our writing so that our work will be valued and respected?
Is politically engaged research gendered and/or raced in the academy? Is the
tenure evaluation process being reworked to be more inclusive? Please join
us for a conversation about these issues with Judy Howard.

Professor Howard’s research focuses on social psychology; the sociology of gender;
intersections of race, class, gender and sexuality; and pedagogy. She is
Divisional Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and former chair of the
Department of Gender, Women and Sexuality Studies at the University of
Washington.

Supporting Women in Geography (SWIG) at the University of Washington is an
informal professional development and mutual support network open to both
women and men coordinated by graduate students and faculty in the Geography
Department. To find out more about SWIG, join our group, or to be notified
of upcoming SWIG events, contact Sara Gilbert at saragilb@uw.edu.
