Center for Women and Information Technology

Center for Women and Information Technology

Housed at the University of Maryland--Baltimore County (UMBC), the Center for Women and Information Technology “is dedicated to providing global leadership in achieving women's full participation in all aspects of information technology (IT).” While CWIT supports a wide range of programs to support women’s entry into IT careers as well as research into the relationship between gender and technology, its Web site itself represents a vast resource on women and IT. To take advantage of this extensive compendium, visit www.umbc.edu/cwit.


MentorNet

MentorNet

Founded in 1997 by Carol Muller, former associate dean of Dartmouth’s engineering school, MentorNet aims to support women and other individuals currently underrepresented in the sciences and engineering, and to promote a more diverse workforce. It pursues these goals through initiatives such as e-mentoring, which matches mentors and protégés for one-on-one email support and networking. With an electronic forum, a résumé database, and other additional resources, MentorNet provides essential assistance to women scientists and engineers in both the academic world and workforce. To learn more or log on, visit www.mentornet.net.


The Scholar & Feminist Online

The Scholar & Feminist Online

Published three times per year by the Barnard Center for Research on Women, The Scholar and Feminist Online is a refereed electronic journal on the cutting edge of electronic academic publishing. Two issues each year arise from events held at Barnard college; the editors accept submissions from potential guest editors for the third annual topic. Recent issues have included “Blogging Feminism: (Web)sites of Resistance” and “Jewish Women Changing America: Cross-Generational Conversations.” To read the current issue, visit www.barnard.edu/sfonline.


Women Writers
Women Writers

General editor Kim Wells has illustrated what happens when the ‘zine (a self-published version of the magazine) migrates to the web. Now a biannual, peer-reviewed e-journal, Women Writers incorporates both scholarly and creative work, providing a forum for a broad array of regular contributors and guest editors. This site exemplifies the potential of grass-roots publication to develop into a formidable enterprise. To read the current and past issues, visit www.womenwriters.net.


Feminist Law Professors
Feminist Law Professors

Blog administrator Ann Bartow, associate professor at the University of South Carolina School of Law, intends for this blog “to build a stronger feminist law prof[essor] community across scholarly subject areas.” Through commentary on recent legal events, interviews of feminist professors, postings of upcoming conferences and opportunities, and a list of law professors who identify as feminists, she illustrates how discipline-specific blogs can support academic networking. To visit the blog, see feministlawprofs.law.sc.edu.


BlogScholar
BlogScholar

This portal for academic bloggers, edited by PhD student Chris Brauer, contains an extensive directory of academic blogs organized by subject matter ranging from art to architecture and medicine to music. Supplemented by RSS newsfeeds and story archives (also organized by subject), this Web site provides a much-needed, if ultimately incomplete, map to the ever-expanding blogosphere. Brauer created the site using open-source software in 2005 and has since remained committed to keeping the site updated. To submit your own blog or view the archives, see www.blogscholar.com.
