If you have a question about this talk, please contact Amy Erickson.

Conversations are governed by co-operative principles, but also by gendered assumptions about authority, and confirmation bias. Conversations in academic contexts are no exception. I want to consider how these factors can affect the success of a speaker’s contributions, and how they can be addressed.

All welcome.
