Desperate Researchers

RSVP: Jo Garde-Hansen jgardehansen@glos.ac.uk

A primetime event with a truly contemporary take on the "happily ever after," this hit session takes a deadly serious look at academia, where the lives of women academics aren’t always what they seem. Key speakers will present their experiences of an all-life approach to being a successful woman academic in media studies. Discussion will focus upon sustaining research and balancing this with work, life and institutional responsibilities.
