Over 10 Million Served, edited by Michelle Massé and Katie Hogan

Although in academia we often talk about the three-legged stool of teaching, research, and service, the impact of service expectations on the academic workplace are often overlooked. We will use this edited collection of essays, which focuses on the role of gender in defining service and the way in which service defines the roles of female professors, to provide us with a framework for exploring the extent to which service duties are gendered at Carleton. We hope to use data from the HERI survey to ground our discussion about the situation at Carleton and to explore how service expectations and roles might be reconsidered.

Facilitators: Melissa Eblen-Zayas, associate professor of physics; and Adriana Estill, associate professor of American studies and English
