Subject: Women's Graduate Student Brownbag Community
The Women and Gender Studies Center
is sponsoring a brown bag community that explores some of the issues
women face during their graduate school careers.
Beyond the Classroom: Women's Grad School Survival Hour
This brown bag community is designed to look at some of the
issues that women face during their graduate careers and offer some
insight into navigating these issues and obstacles. If you are
interested in becoming part of this brown bag community, please contact
Marisa Allison at [log in to unmask] or Zayna Bizri at [log in to unmask].
For the Fall 2011 semester we have three meetings scheduled:
Curriculum Vitae Swap: Tuesday, October 18th, 2011 12:30
p.m., New Graduate Student Space, Alcove JC 3rd Floor
Bring a few copies of your CV to distribute with other graduate
students to get some guidance and share your ideas and tips youâve
heard of just how to compile this mysterious document. Whether it's
barely 1 page or if it's 20 pages long, we'll gather informally to
offer advice to one another.
Teaching Packet Workshop: Tuesday, November 15, 2011
Josh Eyler, Associate Director at Mason's Center for Teaching
Excellence, will join us to give some guidance on how to compile a
teaching packet in preparation for the job market. Though this workshop
will be directed toward Ph.D. students advancing towards jobs in the
academy, it will also provide tips for Master's Students who plan to
eventually teach at the university level.
Preparing for a Job Talk: Tuesday, December 6th, 2011
Know what to expect when you go on a job talk. Will they ask
you to teach a class? How long will they give you to present your
dissertation research? What can or can't they ask you? A panel of
Mason faculty will discuss their job talk experiences and share some
guidance on this process.
