Social institutions such as gender are widely recognized within the social sciences to affect the operation of the world we study. Yet they also affect how we conduct our work as scholars, from how research is conducted to how networks of collaboration and esteem function within the profession, and many other aspects of our lives as scholars. This panel examines new research on how gender operates within the social science professions, features perspectives from a variety of different disciplines, and explores what might be done to address differences and inequities among social scientists. The event features presentations by each panelist and is followed by an open discussion. Lunch will be served, please RSVP | Gender and Race in the Social Science Professions.
