Committee work is a vital part of academia. Theoretical input on micro-political strategies, tactics and stagings helps to understand committees as sites of powerful negotiation processes.

Furthermore competence in committees goes hand in hand with the willingness to engage in micro-political disputes, both cooperatively and competitively. This means preparing for meetings in a concrete strategic way and presenting or "pitching" an issue in a tactically confident manner.

A reflection of one's own counter-gendered interaction behavior is a prerequisite to be recognized as a "competent" acting woman or man. Therefore it makes sense to become more aware of the ambivalence of latently effective stereotyping in political and communicative processes.
