This year, I am working hard at trying to finish my dissertation. This means I’ll be spending plenty of time writing (dissertation, papers, job applications…).
However, I am excited that I will be at the following conferences, symposia, and panels:
April 4-7, 2020 – Cancelled because of COVID-19 American Association for Anatomy at the Experimental Biology Annual Meeting Presenting a poster titled “Effects of Physical Activity and Sedentary Behavior on Bone Density in Healthy Adult Women”
April 15-17, 2020 – Cancelled because of COVID-19 Human Biology Association Annual Meeting Presenting a poster titled “Does relative body size at menarche correspond with adult body size?”
April 15-18, 2020 – Cancelled because of COVID-19 American Association of Physical Anthropologists Presenting a poster (probably) titled “Household food production shows little effect on body size and composition in two samples of young adult women”
September 20, 2019 Dept of Gender and Women’s Studies Symposium – Solidarities of Difference: Keywords in Feminist, Queer, and Trans Studies I will be a participant in roundtable discussions organized around keywords as a way of generating discussion about points of tension or consolidation in feminist, queer, and trans studies at UIUC. Rather than focusing on presentations by individual speakers, the gathering will emphasize a collective conversation about our ideas and connections. Thanks to Mike Atienza for organizing!
August 16-18, 2019 Attended Bone and Muscle Interactions: The Mechanical and Beyond at the Indiana Cencter for Musculoskeletal Health in Indianapolis, Indiana
July 12-14, 2019 SciFoo in Palo Alto, CA
March 27-31, 2019 Human Biology Association and American Association of Physical Anthropologists will be in Cleveland! I will be attending but not presenting at HBA. For AAPA I’ll be part of an invited poster symposium where I’ll be talking about “Estrogen, energy, and skeletal biology: Life history approaches to understanding skeletal phenotype in living women of reproductive age”
October 31-November 3, 2018 Canadian Association for Physical Anthropology in London, Ontario, Canada. I’ll be giving a podium presentation titled “Cripping Menstruation: Reframing menstrual research using critical disability studies and crip theory.” It’ll be my first time to give a theory-heavy talk instead of a data-driven talk, and I’m excited!
October 5, 2018 Wisconsin Symposium on Feminist Biology I’m presenting a poster about part of my research on physical activity. In any case, I’ll be in Madison, Wisconsin for the third Symposium on Feminist Biology. I’ve been each time, and it’s always great.
September 27, 2018: 2018 Data Science Day I will be part of a panel from 10:45-12:15 called “Hesitant Data Science” put together by the Illinois Data Science Initiative at the NCSA building at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
