SUBJECT: Gender, Incivility & Subtle Bias/Melinda Barlow Talk #2
After another very successful LEAP/FTEP sponosored talk given last month by Dr.
Melinda Barlow, we are proud to present the second of four interrelated
workshops. The talks are designed to cultivate leadership capabilities and hone
pedagogic skills in faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral candidates in
the arts, sciences, and humanities at CU. Organized by Dr.Melinda Barlow,
Associate Professor of Film Studies, these workshops take a "brass tacks"
approach to key professional and pedagogical concerns (authority, incivility,
effective oratory, and successful professional development) and consider how
factors of gender, race, sexual orientation, and disability impact
the issues at hand. You do not need to attend the entire series, we welcome
your attendance at any of the talks in the series.
Lunch will be provided.
Please join for what promises to be another very engaging session!
To RSVP, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 735-5993. Note
that space is limited.
The title of the talk scheduled for April 4, UMC Aspen Rooms, 11-1 is:
Gender, Incivility & Subtle Bias: How to Handle Challenging Classroom
How does gender affect pedagogical authority? What is the relationship between
attaining authority and handling incivility? And what is the difference
between incivility and more subtle forms of bias, in the classroom and in other
areas of professional life? This panel discussion tackles these practical
questions from multiple points of view, in part by exploring the connection
between the reality of incivility and the expectation of "immediacy"-the
relationship, in other words, between how we respond to difficult classroom
situations and the degree to which we are perceived to be "nice." Maxine
Burkett, Associate Professor of Law, University of Colorado, and Geoffrey
Bateman, Lecturer, University Writing Program, University of Denver, will join
Professor Barlow in this panel discussion.
