Dr Pauline Reynolds, Associate Professor and Department Chair (Leadership and Higher Education) at the University of Redlands, California, obtained funding for Dr Emily Henderson (CES) to visit the School of Education at Redlands for a week in May 2017. During the institutional visit, Dr Henderson met with members of the Department of Leadership and Higher Education, and she and Dr Reynolds worked on a joint paper that they are writing on fictional representations of conferences - this draws on Dr Reynolds' research on representations of higher education in popular culture, and Dr Henderson's research on conferences. Dr Henderson also presented a paper to students and faculty members at Redlands, entitled 'How gender comes to mean what it means: embodied conceptual knowledge production in academic spaces'
