Shaianne Osterreich, Associate Professor in Economics,  was invited to present at the New School for Social Research in New York during a workshop entitled After Global Feminization: Industrial Change and Gender Segregation.  This workshop brought together scholars investigating questions related to gender equality in labor market outcomes for workers in the global south.  Shaianne’s paper, "Gender, Decent Work, and Global Production Sharing in Indonesia”,  used the International Labour Organization’s definition of ‘decent work’ to investigate the differences in pay and types of contracts for women and men that work in manufacturing exports.  Significant sectoral gender segregation means that women’s export factory work is very different than men’s and often comes with significantly less pay, more temporary contracts, fewer safety provisions, and less access to health benefits.

Dr. Andrew Utterson, Assistant Professor of Screen Studies, recently presented at the annual Society for Cinema and Media Studies (SCMS) conference in Montreal, Canada.

Participating in a panel on the role of sound in online and app-based documentary projects (including a recent work by Canadian artist Stan Douglas), he spoke about theories of interactivity and immersion in considering the role of online and mobile screen technology in mediating our auditory experiences of the world, including how sound (unrecorded as well as recorded) shapes our experiences and understanding of space and place.

This panel was selected by the SCMS Documentary Studies Scholarly Interest Group as having particular significance to the academic study of documentary.
