Women’s Experiences in Academia


On display in this section of the exhibit are Convergence, a special issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, which is devoted to covering equity and diversity issues.  The University of Delaware Research magazine foregrounds work carried out by local scholars. Also on display are several books that provide an overview of women’s academic experiences.  Featured is Gabriella Gutiérrez y Muhs’ Presumed Incompetent: The Intersections of Race and Class for Women in Academia which has given rise to an active, online Facebook group of more than 11,000 followers.
