What Dan Sperber Did About What it’s Like

November 18, 2012 § 2 Comments

Today, catching up with my accumulated mail, I have tentatively accepted three invitations to conferences with the following qualification:
” I have signed the “Commitment to gender equity at scholarly conferences” (http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/commitment-to-gender-equity-at-scholarly-conferences.html) and therefore undertaken “to make [my] participation in conferences – whether as an organizer, sponsor, or invited speaker – conditional on the invitation of women and men speakers in a fair and balanced manner.” If you can confirm that this condition is actually to be fulfilled at your conference, I will indeed be very happy and honoured to participate as a keynote speaker. Otherwise, I suggest you use the keynote speaker’s slot I must decline to fill to invite one of our many outstanding women colleagues.”
I am looking forward to see the reactions.
