Episode: Who are Conferences Good For?
Pub date: 2019-07-24

Most academics go to conferences, but who are they good for? Are there disparities in who can attend and who benefits from conferences? In this episode, we talk about one potential factor contributing to disparities–differences in travel funding available at different universities. We also talk about our own experiences with what we’ve gotten out of conferences with respect to our research, teaching, and mentoring of students.
