Please note that the Call for Chapters for the book - Gender Stereotyping in Campus Placement: An Industry-Academia Perspective is now open. We are seeking individual or co-authored submissions of chapters for publication. Participants are invited to submit full papers by 20th July 2019. Preliminary submission of abstracts is not required. Further details for the book volume are given below.
The issue of gender differences and gender stereotyping play an important role in career counselling, choices, and placement processes in professional institutes. An urge to simplify the social reality tends to create gender stereotypes which deliver two consequences:
(a) A simplified version of complex reality,
(b) A resistance to change reinforced by a series of cognitive, behavioural, and linguistic mechanisms.
These tendencies result in misinterpretation of social reality. Beliefs formed on the basis of the attitude of simplification accentuate the association between particular professional categories and gender. In other words, certain professions are considered appropriate for female professionals and certain others are regarded as good for their male counterparts. It is generally assumed that that gender stereotypes diminish when academic excellence is given primary importance in our premier institutions like Indian Institutes of Management (IIM). Against this backdrop the upcoming volume intends to collect and present a book with following Sub-themes
1. Gender stereotypes and recruiters (Industry)
2. Career preferences in campus placements
3. Gender bias in occupations/professions.
4. Industry and academia collaboration in reducing gender stereotyping in campus placement processes
The book is targeted to be suitable for: policy makers, academicians, researchers, advance-level students, Industrialists, HR committees, placement makers, educators working with civil society and education institutions and government officials. They will find this book useful in furthering their research and exposure to pertinent topics related to gender. The book will elaborate on the contemporary situation related to gender disparity at all levels and will help in creating awareness among different groups.
In addition, it can serve as a reference book for research and supplementary reading for students of Gender studies, Communications, Sociology and Humanities. The expected audience will use this book as a reference for comparative education as well as to learn more about new trends of employment and industry based environment.
Guidelines and Thematic Sections
Gender is the social structuring of ideas that define expectations, values, images, behaviors, belief systems and roles of society from men and women. Different cultures have different ideas about gender, what is appropriate for women and men, and what needs to happen. Gender does not only differ from culture to culture, it can change over time or during the crisis of a society. The idea shifts to different parameters when discussed under industrial heads, choice and scale of profession.Gender stereotypes are frequently found in Academics and Industry. Gender patterns are frequently encountered in employment sector, management stream, and technical sections, posts related to management, leadership and human resources. There are slight studies available in literature, statistical surveys about the representation of gender at industry academia perspective. However, this study considers the industry-academia as a whole and will provide a statistical output within the academic world and industrial environment, thereby generating awareness among different age groups.
We welcome empirical papers (qualitative or quantitative), theoretical discussions, comparative analyses, and in-depth case studies. Topics for submission may fall under the following thematic divisions, but are not limited to the same:
