Alice profiled for Women’s History Month
Alice was honoured by being recognized by Purdue as part of their Women’s History Month celebration. Check out her profile here!
Alice has co-authored paper in special anniversary issue of Journal of SWE!
Alice’s co-authored paper with Karen Tonso is now out electronically. Read it online or print it to pdf here. What? You never heard of the Journal of the Society of Women Engineers? Well, it began in 1951, had 4 issues, then seemed to die… but they revived it as part of SWE’s 60th anniversary. The whole volume is chock full of good stuff. Enjoy!
RIFE paper in Reflective Practice, August issue
Dina and Alice have a paper coming out in Reflective Practice in August 2011!
Abstract: This paper argues that interviewing is a process in which interviewees can reflect on critical decisions about their academic careers. Reflective practice is a course of action where a person ponders significant incidents in her or his life. In so doing, she or he can make critical decisions about her or his own well-being. Drawing on our experiences collecting qualitative data for ADVANCE Purdue, an NSF-funded project to increase the number and success of women faculty in STEM academic disciplines, we illustrate how interviews triggered our interviewees to think differently about accessing or interpreting promotion and tenure policies of the university. Hence, we argue that interviews can be considered as a form of reflective practice where interviewees decide to take alternative actions to enhance their well-being. In this paper, we ask: (a) how do interviews trigger new realizations among interviewees? (b) how do interviews act as agents of potential social change? Data are derived from semi-structured interviews with faculty members from science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and agriculture disciplines at Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana. We interpret the data qualitatively in the context of reflective practice.

Alice presents at the Women’s Studies Noon Lecture
I had fun presenting at the Women’s Studies Program Noon Lecture today. I’ve posted the slides here, although there is a lot of backstory that Slideshare can’t reproduce. Hope they’re helpful anyway. Thanks to everyone who came out, especially my RIFE peeps for the moral support!
