Presentation Date: 

Wednesday, May 16, 2012


Presentation Slides: 

Cassandra Extavour, Associate Professor of Organismic & Evolutionary Biology, Harvard

Extavour will highlight how the wants and needs of scholars at various career stages (undergraduate student, graduate student, post-doc, research assistant, faculty pre- and post-tenure) play out in the practices of authorship, what happens when those aspects of authorship may conflict, and the consequences of different solutions to such conflicts for the furtherance of research and careers. She will draw on her expertise in experimental scientific research, although some of the themes will apply to publication practice in the humanities and social sciences.
