Visiting Scholar Talk: The Place of Care and Carers in Academia

April 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

‘Western academia’ has considerably diversified over the past fifty years with many students and staff now having some form of caring responsibilities. Despite this, academic excellence continues to be associated with the ‘bachelor boy’ (Hinton-Smith, 2012) and academic cultures create a range of issues for those with caring responsibilities.

Dr Marie-Pierre Moreau will be visiting the University of Newcastle (UON) to deliver a seminar to explore how university policies and care regimes shape the experiences of academic staff with caring responsibilities.

Refreshments and further discussion will follow the presentation.
