Faculty Reads: The Parent Track: Timing, Balance and Choice in Academia
Start Date: 4/25/2018Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 4/25/2018End Time: 1:30 PM

Event Description:

Join us for Faculty Reads, featuring one of the authors of The Parent Track: Timing, Balance, and Choice in Academia, edited by Christina DeRoche and Ellie D. Berger and published by Wilfrid Laurier University Press.

The Parent Track provides an in-depth understanding of parenting in academia, from diverse perspectives – gender, age, race/ethnicity, marital status, sexual orientation – and at different phases of a parent’s academic career. This collection not only arrives at a comprehensive understanding of parenthood and academia: it reveals the shifting ideologies surrounding the challenges of negotiating work and family balance in this context.

Tarah Brookfield, associate professor, history; Youth and Children’s Studies will help lead our discussion. Brookfield is the author of the chapter “He Told me ‘Babies Sleep’: Expectations and Realities about Maternity Leave Productivity.”

Register for the event.
