I am facilitating the MELUS Women of Color Caucus (WOCC) roundtable for the annual conference 2014. It will feature a candid discussion by successful women who have mapped and travelled the cultural geographies of higher education. Panelists will speak about their leadership journeys, and attendees will have opportunity to ask questions and engage in conversation. Topics will include: confronting social barriers, navigating publishing, work/life balance, and more. Please join us to learn ideas about how you might make and mark your own trails in the territory of academia. Confirmed speakers are as listed below: Marta Caminero-Santangelo, Professor, Department of English, University of Kansas Yemisi Jimoh, Professor, Department of Afro-American Studies, University of Massachusetts Amherst Wenying Xu, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Chatham University
