GenX women in higher ed from around the globe

Anamaria Dutceac Segesten

Always the political scientist, Anamaria Dutceac Segesten is interested in power relations both in the social & political life and in the academia. She is currently a research fellow at the Center for Modern European Studies, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, and has worked previously at Lund University and Malmö University, both in Sweden. With experience from American and European higher education, her favorite topics at the University of Venus are the challenges of being a GenX woman in the academia, the future of the university, and the use of technology and social media in teaching social sciences and the humanities.

Anamaria likes to be creative in more than one way. For a year ago she was part of a team that started two new programs in European Studies at Lund University. Before that she created her own intensive summer course, and, of course designed several other courses related to EU politics and to the Balkan region. Other creative outlets are photography and knitting.

Anamaria loves languages: she is fluent in four and knowledgeable in four others.  She likes to use them all while commenting on Twitter. You can find her blogging on education issues here and on her research project on eurosymbols here.

I think about the things that interest me academically all the time and I see them all around me – I call this the privilege of loving my work! At the same time, I admit that some administrative matters are intruding upon my private time. But like with most administrative things they come in ebbs and flows. Sometimes there is more to manage (admissions time, launching new courses, beginning of semesters), some other times there’s less. […]

  2. […] Anamaria Dutceac Segesten (Lund, Sweden): It is difficult to get to write when I have no inspiration. Or better said when I have no desire to think about the matters I must describe. Then I like to read books and articles written in a style I appreciate. Recently I have also started a research blog to help me put down ideas and get some feedback. My blog is […]

  3. […] Anamaria Dutceac Segesten (Lund, Sweden): During my first year of teaching, a student said “bullshit” out loud after I discussed the changes of mentality required by some environmentalists (and when I was turned towards the blackboard). I was first surprised and then angry at this unacademic way to criticize ideas and politely asked the student to leave the room, which she did grumpily. […]

  4. […] Anamaria Dutceac Segesten (Sweden) As a teacher, the greatest satisfaction is to witness that “WOW!” moment, the eye opener, when things that have been obscure reveal a meaning to the students or to the conversation partners. As a researcher, the sweetest thing is to satisfy one’s academic curiosity, the detective work of researching, thinking and discovering new aspects of one’s subject. […]

  5. […] also reminded me the blogpost that my professor in my master published in our class blog explaining how to become a euroblogger. In this blogpost I […]
