WRITE ME DOWN IN HISTORY: SUPPORTING THE WORK OF NEXT GEN SCHOLARS

May 3, 2023 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

Type of Event: Virtual

Day of Event Contact: Dr. Stephanie Y. Evans – professorsevans@gmail.com

This online workshop will be a mentoring space for the next generation of faculty in race and gender studies. Workshop registration will prioritize the most vulnerable university educators in marginalized fields (like African American Studies or Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies) where scholarship is under attack and devalued. The “Anti-Woke” censorship of African American Studies, Intersectionality, and Black Feminism is designed to silence scholarship that unpacks the roots of oppression by having a chilling effect on interest in reading, writing, and teaching critical history or theory. In short, censorship and intimidation are designed to keep us from doing our work

This 1-hour online mentoring workshop supports instructional faculty working in higher education who may feel especially uneasy in times when race and gender studies are (again, as always) under a microscope. This is exactly the time we must make our voices heard! If you are working on a book proposal or book-length manuscript in race and gender studies–particularly on projects informed by Intersectionality and Black Feminism–register for this workshop to learn more about strategies to complete your book project despite the chaos of these trying times. 

Dr. Stephanie Y. Evans, author of three books and co-editor of five (at three different university presses), will offer insights about academic book publishing including: how to maintain wellness and balance; placing publication in career context; demystifying the book proposal process; locating resources and building networks. Along with self-care and communal care, acts of intellectual care are vital to ensure continued growth of race and gender studies as well as related disciplines in humanities and social sciences that benefit from our vibrant scholarship.
