Understanding and Supporting Early Career Academics' Identity WorkFriday, August 5, 2022 11:00 – 12:30 PM
Seattle Convention Center (room 606) in person onlyIn this interactive workshop, facilitated by a faculty team who have been leading early-career academic development programs at the institutional and academy level, we will explore the tensions, challenges, and opportunities that early-career academics encounter. We will explore how early career scholars develop a coherent identity position spanning research, teaching and service will be explored as we also consider how the events of the past two years –both the global pandemic and broad social unrest – have affected early-career academics. The dual aims of the workshop are to (i) initiate a process of exploration and reflection that helps early-career academics to develop career resilience and coherence through identity work, and (ii) encourage continued research in this area.
