As fruitful as our monthly ReCESS gatherings have been in discussing our scholarly pursuits, sharing advice and resources, and building community, we at TCDC thought this month’s meet-up might take a slightly different approach.
For our next scheduled lunch on February 16th, 2016, from 12:00pm – 1:15pm, we’d like to set aside specific research concerns momentarily to discuss what our own role as academics (or academics-in-training) in the field of education during this period of deep political tension. The idea for the session is to focus less on specific political issues, and more on opening up a conversation about the role that we, especially in the field of education, can or should be playing in the current political climate.
As always, we’ll provide good nutritious food and excellent company. As in prior sessions, we continue to welcome discussion about your work as a graduate student any stage of the process – research designs in flux, a qualifying paper gone haywire, problems in data analysis, or polished conference or job presentations.
We look forward to seeing everyone there!!
