December 4th – 7th, 2016 in Cape Town, South Africa
Game Change is a career development and writing workshop aimed primarily at early career Black and African women academics, and welcoming all applicants committed to an open and equal academe. Our goal is to create space for scholars to share strategies for surviving and thriving amidst systemic and institutional challenges, whether because of race, ethnicity, gender, or other factors. And particularly, to do so with respect to and in support of our writing.
These workshops usually have an ‘apprenticeship’ approach, where junior scholars are taught to succeed at the game as it stands. We hope to use this instead as a reflective and creative opportunity for ourselves and for mentorship that could change the game.
