New Faculty Workshop (Sponsored by the Division on Women and Crime)

Joanne Belknap, University of Colorado at Boulder
Helen M. Eigenberg, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
Vernetta D. Young, Howard University

This workshop is intended to provide a space for open discussions of the myriad of concerns and issues faced by new faculty members in academe. The idea for this workshop arose from concerns noted by new faculty at last year's Division on Women and Crime Business Meeting. Among the topics to be addressed are academic socialization; isoltation/marginalization; work environments/social support networks; personal and political identifies; research/publishing; pedogogy and self-presentation; and time management (balancing service, teaching and research). A diverse and experienced set of panelists will be present to share their perspectives on negotiating the academic terrain, field questions, and engage in conversation with attendees.
