"Over Ten Million Served: Gender and Academic Service"

November 3, 2010 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Speaker/Participants: 
Katie J. Hogan, Professor of English and Director of Women's Studies, Carlow University

Women's Studies Program

All tenured and tenure-track faculty know the trinity of promotion and tenure criteria: research, teaching, and service. While teaching and research are relatively well-defined areas of institutional focus and evaluation, service work is rarely tabulated or analyzed as a key aspect of higher education’s political economy.

Instead, service, silent and invisible, coexists with the formal, “official” economy of many institutions, just as women’s unrecognized domestic labor props up the formal, official economies of countries the world over. Katie Hogan will speak about this gendered form of institutional caregiving, drawing on the recent book she coedited with Michelle Massé, Over Ten Million Served (SUNY UP, 2010).
