'Draw the line' - Cultural boundary-making in everyday academic work life

Different Career Paths


Female and male scientists follow different career paths in different national contexts; some countries are better than others at attracting women to a research career in science, and at some universities the workplace culture supports or aggravates the situation.

The 'Draw the line'-conference held on May 30-31 2008 gave a multifaceted picture of the diversity of the everyday life at universities in five European countries: Italy, Poland, Finland, Estonia and Denmark.

The conference was a part of the UPGEM research project: Understanding Puzzles in the Gendered European Map
