Requesting a letter of recommendation Advice by Michael Ernst

I thought this document was very detailed and would be useful to many of you.

Requesting a letter of recommendation

by Michael Ernst

Advancement in your professional career (such as obtaining a job or fellowship) often requires that you obtain letters of recommendation from previous colleagues, supervisors, etc. In general, letters tend to be more important in academic jobs than for industrial ones. You shouldn’t feel that you are imposing when you ask for such letters: the letter-writers recognize that it is part of their professional responsibility. However, you should also do everything in your power to ease the burden on your references…..

2019 Deep-Dive Dialogue Series

The Deep-Dive Dialogue Series is an opportunity for twelve UW undergraduates of different backgrounds and perspectives to have ongoing (5-session) dialogue about an issue they all care about – over dinner.

Like our one-time dialogues, students will practice the skills necessary to interact constructively across difference; experience personal growth; and explore divergent perspectives before engaging with resolution. The purpose is to work across difference towards a world where there is justice and liberty for all.

Within the extended time-frame, we hope students will:

  • learn about one another’s lived experiences
  • come to understand one another’s motivations, concerns, and hopes
  • wrestle with challenging questions, points of disagreement, and competing priorities
  • map a co-created understanding of the topic and avenues for change

The Basics:

The Deep-Dive Dialogue Series is a 5-session cross-perspective endeavor to communicate and co-create regarding an issue critical to our campus and community. A simple dinner is provided.

Mondays, February 4, 11, 25, March 11, April 8th (2019): 5-7pm

Between March 11th and April 8th, there will likely be another meeting/outing that your group does together at a time convenient for you and without the facilitators.

The application will go up December 15th, and we will be including a section prior to January 1st in which early applicants can vote for various topics they personally would like to focus on!

Space is limited to only 12 students. As always, our goal will be to comprise a group of students whose perspectives and backgrounds reflect many walks of life, but who have interest in the same issue/topic. Please know that if you are not invited to this series simply because of the need to balance the group, there will be other ways to stay involved!

Please look for the application on the website at

Let me know if you have any other questions!

My best,

Still room in a GWSS course: GWSS 490 Gender and Sexuality in India

There is still room in this GWSS special topics course for the winter quarter:

GWSS 490: Gender and Sexuality in India

Winter 2019 MW 1:30-3:20 pm SAV 138

Instructor: Prof. Priti Ramamurthy

What do “gender” and “sexuality” mean in India? What do terms in Indian languages–devdasi, hijra, kothi, bhadramahila, aadavallu, thirunar, for example—conjure? How have these concepts changed in meaning and transformed people’s identities and experiences? What do gender and sexuality as analytical frameworks tell us about the violent and everyday operations of power and difference—especially caste, religious, trans and sexual difference–in India, and beyond? How have feminist movements and movements for gender and sexual freedoms sought and brought about transformations in knowledge, law, and radical social change? How have they been depoliticized? We will develop our thinking along these lines at different moments and recursively by considering: the woman question and colonialism, anti-colonialism and nationalism; the modern girl and transnationalism; the agrarian question and women’s economic role in state-led development; the caste question; masculinities and religious assertion; the new middle class; globalization, financialization and urban informality. We will read “classic” and current essays, books, reports, and documentaries by feminist cultural and social historians, anthropologists, and political economists, artists and novelists.
