    Date & Time
    Tuesday, December 6, 2011 -
    12:00pm to 1:30pm
    Description

    Professor Kim Weeden will show that in the US, men and women PhDs are segregated not only by field but also by the prestige of their doctoral programs. Relative to field averages, women tend to be underrepresented among graduates of the highest- and the lowest-ranked doctoral programs. She will speculate about the sources of this pattern, and discuss its implications for research on gender in higher education and for institutional diversity efforts.  Lunch provided  and RSVP required to attend.

    The Michelle R. Clayman Institute for Gender Research proudly presents I’m Dying Up Here, an exhibition of photography and mixed media works by Bay Area artist Tammy Rae Carland.  Taking the pioneering humor of early female comedians as her point of departure, Carland’s work tackles the hilarious, absurd, and often abject world of stand-up comedy.  Her large-scale color photographs isolate female performers in the glaring spotlight of vacant stages.
