Speaker: Kathrin Zippel, Northeastern University
This workshop series is primarily designed to assist advanced graduate students with their ongoing research projects. The workshop aims to expose participants to original approaches to social studies of science and technology, but also to expose students to solutions to common challenges of academic work. We aim to provide a supportive environment offering feedback and advice on all aspects of academic work, from devising and conducting research, to producing written texts of all kinds (grant applications, dissertation proposals and publications). Please contact the organizer, Larry Au, [email protected], if you do not have a Columbia ID and would like to attend.
Kathrin Zippel has published on gender politics in the workplace, public and social policy, social movements, welfare states, and globalization in the United States and Europe. Her book The Politics of Sexual Harassment in the United States, the European Union and Germany (Cambridge University Press) won several awards. Her current research explores gender and global transformations of science and education. In her forthcoming book, Women in Global Science: Advancing Careers Through International Collaboration (Stanford University Press), she argues that global science is the new frontier for women, providing both opportunities and challenges as gender shapes the dynamics and practices of international research.
This event is sponsored by the Department of Sociology at Columbia University.
