Quiet Girl Collective: Call for Panelists

The Quiet Girl Collective is a new initiative at CMEP that seeks to be a space for women of colour to confront and investigate their relationship to quietness. Why are we quiet and what does that mean for ourselves? How is silence related to our identities? QGC seeks to build a community of self-identified quiet girls who wish to explore and navigate the boundaries of quietness.

In January 2018, the Quiet Girl Collective is holding a panel discussion on quiet women of colour and the lack of space for introversion and quietness in academia. We're looking for professors and academics of colour who self-identify as quiet and are willing to share their experiences in academia and how being quiet has influenced or changed their personal or professional trajectories. The panel will explore what it means to be a quiet person in a field that expects personal extroversion, and what it means that academia and universities code success as a willingness to speak up and stand out. If interested, please contact Sooah (sooah@nyu.edu) or Jun (junleilee@nyu.edu) directly and do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
