Michelle Egan

American University
Professor Egan has published widely in the area of comparative politics and political economy, with numerous books and articles. She is the recipient of prestigious grants and fellowships for both individual and collaborative work that have enabled her to conduct field work in multiple countries, drawing on different disciplinary materials, along with archival work using different language sources. She has been a sought after public commentator on radio and television, and worked with several think-tanks on policy related issues in Europe and the United States.

Conference interest: I would like the University to focus on the discouraging gap in terms of gender citations which is detrimental to high impact research and has been a source of reports, surveys and data analysis in my field to illustrate how pervasive this issue has become. The notion of public impact implies media visibility in the conference, but impact beyond scholarly (ie what is termed public impact) can also take place in other arenas (off the record meetings, interagency advisory groups, briefing of policymakers, advising Ambassadors and other officials) so how utilize, how evaluate and assess, either in terms of metrics, performance review or other measures.
