Talking gender : public images, personal journeys, and political critiques by Nancy A Hewitt( )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Talking Gender assesses the state of women's studies in the 1990s. The contributors write from the perspective of their own academic disciplines and experiences, but they also address more general issues of women's lives and circumstances. The result is a broad picture of women's studies and feminist scholarship, which emerge as a rich, if sometimes dissonant, chorus of voices. These original essays cover a range of topics and a variety of times and places: images of women inherited from Roman oratory, visual images from cultures of trauma; verbal imagery in today's pornography debates; p

Africa and the disciplines : the contributions of research in Africa to the social sciences and humanities( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"African Studies, contrary to some accounts, is not a separate continent in the world of American higher education. Its intellectual borders touch those of economics, literature, history, philosophy, and art its history is the story of the world, both ancient and modern. This is the clear conclusion of Africa and the Disciplines, a book that addresses the question: Why should Africa be studied in the American university? This question was put to distinguished scholars in the social sciences and humanities, prominent Africanists who are also leaders in their various disciplines. Their responses make a strong and enlightening case for the importance of research on Africa to the academy. Paul Collier's essay, for example, shows how studies of African economies have clarified our understanding of the small open economies, and contributed to the theory of repressed inflation and to a number of areas in microeconomics as well. Art historian Suzanne Blier uses the terms and concepts that her discipline has applied to Africa to analyze the habits of mind and social practice of her own field. Christopher L. Miller describes the confounding and enriching impact of Africa on European and American literary theory. Political scientist Richard Sklar outlines Africa's contributions to the study of political modernization, pluralism, and rational choice. These essays, together with others from scholars in history, anthropology, philosophy, and comparative literature, attest to the influence of African research throughout the curriculum. For many, knowledge from Africa seems distant and exotic. These powerful essays suggest the contrary: that such knowledge has shaped the way in which scholars in various disciplines understand their worlds. Eloquent testimony to Africa's necessary place in the mainstream of American education, this book should alter the academy's understanding of the significance of African research, its definition of core and periphery in human knowledge." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/description/uchi052/93003770.html

The Dual Careers of Faculty and Family: Can They Both be Done Well? Part 3: Observations from the Field by Jean F O'Barr( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Issues that confront the dual career family, a family in which both parents work outside the home and are actively involved in developing a profession, are discussed. This report focuses on issues relative to married couples with children and specifically to college faculty couples. Modifications in life style required in these circumstances are discussed and it is suggested that while educational equality for men and women is increasing there are relatively few dual career marriages. Traditional career advancement is viewed as discriminatory toward women. Women's professional career patterns are examined and four stages are noted: (1) marriage; (2) childbearing; (3) professional preparation; and (4) the assumption or resumption of professional practice. The distribution of household and parenting responsibilities is discussed as well as financial problems and the effects of dual career marriages on children. Specifics of various types of marital relationships are discussed as they relate to the success of dual careers. Competition is viewed as a substantial hurdle in dual career marriages. Conditions that employers and society can create to make dual career marriages easier to attain are proposed. It is recommended that rational, cooperative decision-making will augment the success of a dual career marriage. (SF)
