Fall 2011 Event Series: Moving beyond institutional and institutionalized barriers

In January 2012, the Clayman Institute is co-hosting the 40th Anniversary Celebration of Ms. Magazine with a university-wide symposium on the future of feminism. Leading up to this historic event, the Clayman Institute Fall 2011 series will investigate the barriers facing women in diverse institutional arrangements including war, marriage and academia – and bring together speakers who invite new thinking on how to move beyond the stall we face today.

    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.
