Take a Survey: Impacts of Caregiving on Academic Career Trajectories
Jun 13 @ 6:23 pm – 7:23 pm

We would like to invite you to participate in a survey aiming to understand the impacts of caregiving on academic career trajectories. We are seeking survey responses from anthropologists in all career phases (e.g. student, post-bachelor, Masters, PhD) and domains (e.g., academic, applied, on leave, retired, working). If you previously began a survey but were unable to complete it at that time, we would especially invite you to do that now: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3038130/Academic-Care-Work.

The Carework in the Academy Initiative met at the 2015 & 2016 AAAs with concerns and questions about how career trajectories are impacted by policies and practices that affect us as caregivers of children, parents, partners, and other special people in our lives. You will have the opportunity to opt-in to share your responses on our website, where we currently share best practices and resources related to caregiving in academia across institutions as they relate to advancement barriers and strategies for negotiating with institutions.

The survey can take as little as 10-15 minutes, or longer depending on the length of descriptive responses you choose to share about your caregiving and work-life experiences. If you can’t finish the survey in one sitting, you can return to it later to complete it.

Thank you!

African Critical Inquiry Programme Call for Proposals to Organize a Workshop
May 1 all-day

Closing Date: Tuesday 1 May 2018

The African Critical Inquiry Programme invites proposals from scholars and/or practitioners in public cultural institutions in South Africa to organize a workshop to take place in 2019. The African Critical Inquiry Programme (ACIP) seeks to advance inquiry and debate about the roles and practice of public culture, public cultural institutions and public scholarship in shaping identities and society in Africa.

ACIP Workshops are intended as annual occasions to identify and address critical themes, fundamental questions and pressing practical issues concerning public culture. For instance, Workshops might focus on particular notions and issues related to publics, visuality, museums and exhibitions, art, performance, representational or institutional forms from methodological, practical, and theoretical vantages. They might examine forms and practices of public scholarship and the theories, histories and systems of thought that shape and illuminate public culture and public scholarship. Workshops should encourage comparative, interdisciplinary and cross-institutional interchange and reflection that brings into conversation public scholarship in Africa, creative cultural production, and critical theory. Workshop budgets will vary depending on proposed plans; the maximum award is ZAR 60,000.

Applications may be submitted by experienced scholars and cultural practitioners based in universities, museums, and other cultural organizations in South Africa who are interested in creating or reinvigorating interdisciplinary, cross-institutional engagement and understanding and who are committed to training the next generations of scholar-practitioners. Applications may be submitted by a single individual or a pair of individuals who have different institutional affiliations and bring different perspectives, approaches or specializations to the proposed Workshop theme.

For full information about this opportunity and how to apply, see the full Call for Proposals listed under “ACIP Opportunities” on our website: http://www.gs.emory.edu/about/special/acip.html.
