Back to speakers
   Christina Fattore is an associate professor of political science at West Virginia University, where her research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of international political economy and gender issues. She received her BA in political science and history at Gettysburg College and her MS and PhD in political science at Florida State University. She is quite active on Twitter (@cfattorewvu), where she writes about gender issues in academia, imposter syndrome, and her two kids and three cats, among other things. Instead of working toward a better work-life balance, she encourages folx to reject a separation of their professional and personal life and instead live a more whole, authentic existence. She went viral in early 2020 with her authentic “decade in review” tweet that was featured on  Good Morning America , Headline News,  Parents  magazine,  Working Mother magazine, and George Takei’s Facebook page.
