Elizabeth's Announcements
AFT On Campus "Speak out" on social networking in academic life

The "Speak Out" feature in the Sept/Oct issue of AFT On Campus asks the question: Do the problems of social networking outweigh the benefits. I wrote the "NO" answer arguing that, like all tools, effective use of social networking tools must be learned but that when used well those tools significantly enhances the free exchange of ideas.

Here is a link to the issue PDF (Look for "Speak Out" on the side bar.) read more ...

A peek at my recent work

I've been doing some traveling and speaking recently. I've given talks on research ethics, sex work and the need to build trust between researchers and the people that they study. One talk was given at a grassroots conference where bloggers, activists, sex workers, BDSM practitioners and all sorts of other people got together to discuss issues of sex and society. The other was given at a very academic conference full of researchers discussing sex and society. In the first I collaborated with Renegade Evolution. In the second, with Dr. Michael Goodyear. Below you can see a video of the first presentation and a powerpoint slide show from the second.
