Researching parenting and working.
Researching, parenting and working.
Different emphases, but the same idea – I am an academic researcher who does research about work and parenting while parenting and working.
While this is my location (‘woman’ ‘parenting’ and ‘working’), most of us who produce academic work have non-work responsibilities (and, hopefully, some fun and downtime in there, too). These all need to find a balance with the demanding nature of academic productivity.
How do we do this, in an sector that doesn’t always recognise or reward the non-linear stuff of life?
This is a saturated topic, but this post shares a few notes from reading, researching and talking about this (still! again!), which may spark next ideas and conversations.
