Dear EdEquity Colleagues,
This message was forwarded to me by Sue Klein at OERI. Please note the deadline
date for submissions if you want to apply. Perhaps a group of folks from
EdEquity might want to suggest topics for a group presentation as a way to bring
some of us together. Sue's colleague suggested that some people might want to
present on math and science related findings. I would be really interested in
finding out it anyone is doing work on building on the strengths of working
class and poor women--across race, culture, ethncity, etc. This would be a
session I would be interested in working on, for example. As someone who now
moves in a middle class academic-related world during the day, lives the rest of
her life in a strong "ethnic" inner city neighborhood, and draws strength from
both my working class family and roots as a first generation woman, I am always
concerned that the strength that keeps women going is sometimes overlooked or
denigrated in some of the research or discussions. Is anyone interested in
working with me on putting together such a proposal? Let me know via e-mail
( Otherwise, I hope this announcement generates lots of
submissions .

Please forward to grad students and faculty with the message from
me at the beginning. Thanks.

To Women's Studies Students and Faculty:
The Mid-Atlantic Women's Studies Assoc. Conference will be near
Annapolis (about an hour or less from DC) in October. The call for papers
is attached below. Abstracts are due April 20th.
This is an excellent opportunity for students to gain experience
presenting at a conference. It will be on a Saturday. If you are a
graduating student and plan to be in the area you can still participate.
You can propose individual papers or a panel. For students, if you want
help and encouragement, I'll be glad to look over your abstract, or help
you put together a panel.

For faculty, this is an opportunity to make our program visible.

The conference information is also listed on the women's studies web
