[INTERVIEWED] Women and Technology in the Church

I was interviewed by Oladokun Damilola, an MMU student who was pulling together material for her Masters dissertation in multimedia journalism. Great to share online space with @digitalnun again. My segment starts: You can listen, and read more insights on Oladokun’s website. drbexl Life Explorer, HE/learning, Christian, cultural history, WW2 posters: Keep Calm & Carry On, digital world, coach, ENFP, @digitalfprint, @ww2poster http://drbexl.co.uk Like it?

[WRITER] Day by Day With God @BRFOnline

This arrived this morning, via a little tour to the CODEC offices in Durham, and my new next door neighbour nicely took the parcel in: I remember ‘gulping’ somewhat when given Genesis to focus upon for late August for these daily Bible readings, but plenty of notice was given, so plenty of time to think and pray it over … with the majority of the actual writing done on a train to/from the 2015 Spring Continue Reading →

Challenge and Inspiration: #GWLOct15

Gathering of Women Leaders started very small back in 2012 (here’s the original ideas – PDF) – I first visited one in 2013, and have endeavoured to make it to at least one every year (there have been three, next year there will be two), despite living a long way out of London – as I have formed some excellent relationships, friendships, and networking opportunities there (often all come together!) – whilst gaining the opportunity to Continue Reading →

The Scholarly-ness of Sources

Interesting piece in this week’s Times Higher Education. I certainly use a range of sources in my writing, but then my recent book Raising Children in a Digital Age does not count for the REF, as it’s aimed at a ‘general readership’ (which does at least mean it gets read by 1000s of people, rather than the average of 3!) A student is researching scholarly material for her essay. She finds an excellent quote. It ticks all Continue Reading →

Can (women) have it all?

Interesting article re: whether women (or anyone) can have it all in a culture which is “always on”: Last month, a predictable storm erupted in response to Anne-Marie Slaughter’s confessional in Atlanticmagazine. “Women Still Can’t Have It All,” she declared, explaining why she had given up her dream job in the State Department to spend more time with her family. The gruelling demands of the Washington work culture – known, apparently, as “Obama time” – had Continue Reading →

Why do women do less well in academia?

“Women produce fewer papers than men over a lifetime and are still scarce in senior positions, especially in science. Dispelling myths of innate difference between the sexes, Amanda Goodall offers advice on how they can raise their research productivity and status in the academy I knew nothing about the subject of women’s research productivity until Grace Neville, the charismatic vice-president for teaching and learning at University College Cork, invited me to chair a seminar on Continue Reading →

Oxford University Abstract: This thesis is a study of attitudes to women and domesticity in England, c. 1939-55.
