In Two Places at Once: Caring responsibilities & academic conferences

Call for Participants

  • Are you an academic/researcher/teacher in Higher Education/student attending a conference (including a one-day conference) between now and 17th July 2017?
  •  Do you have caring responsibilities (including children, parents and other relatives, pets, friends and kin)?

If so, you are invited to participate in a research project about academic conferences and caring responsibilities. The project is a small-scale exploratory study called 'In two places at once: the impact of caring responsibilities on academics' conference participation' (funded by the University of Warwick Research Development Fund).

The process involves:

  • Before the conference: a short conversation (by email/Skype/phone/face-to-face if possible) in which you will learn about the project and be asked to complete the consent form.
  • At/just after the conference: before the conference, you will be sent a user-friendly time questionnaire for you to record when you have contact with/deal with/think about your caring responsibilities at the conference.
  • After the conference: an interview (by Skype/face-to-face if possible; this will be audio-recorded) of approx. one hour based on your completed time questionnaire, and some questions about your conference attendance in general.

If you are interested in participating, or if you have further questions, please contact Emily Henderson (e.henderson@warwick.ac.uk). You can find additional information on the main project web page.
