Theme: Who Am I? Disclosing Your Identity in the Academic Job Search
Karen Kelsky, The Professor Is In, Presiding
Saturday - 3:30 PM-5:00 PM
Hilton Bayfront-206 (Second Level)

In this 90 minute informal and interactive workshop, Karen Kelsky of the Professor Is In will discuss considerations around disclosing aspects of personal identity on the job search, as well as issues related to navigating identities in the evaluation of, application to, and negotiation of academic jobs. We will look specifically at challenges that arise around race, nationality, class, immigration status, illness, disability, sexual identity, and gender identity and history, and consider the pros and cons of disclosure, considerations of timing and approach, and dealing with bias, microaggressions, and tokenization/objectification. There are no "right answers" in this evolving and very personal process; the goal of the workshop is to open space for dialogue to prompt guiding questions and insights moving forward.

Sponsored by the Applied Religious Studies Committee.
