Galman quoted in Anthropology News

Sally Campbell Galman, assistant professor in the Department of Teacher Education and Curriculum Studies, is quoted in an article in the February 2010 edition of Anthropology News in the Society for Anthropology of Work column. The article talks about a roundtable offered at the 2009 American Anthropological Association’s meeting in Philadelphia titled “Balancing Children and the Academy from Grad School to Tenure,” in which scholars, including Galman, who are also parents, share their experiences. Roundtable organizers Susanne Cohen (University of Michigan) and Csilla Kalocsai (Yale University ) write that “Galman noted that it was her personal goal to ‘transform the academy with motherhood.’” The article further notes that many of the discussion participants “agreed that it was imperative to take steps to change academic structures in order to help future generations more easily juggle scholarly and parental roles.”
