CALL FOR PAPERS! Presumed Incompetent:
The Intersections of Race and Class for Women in Academia
Edited by: Grace Chang, Carmen G. González, Mary Romero, Yolanda Flores Niemann,
Angela Harris, and Gabriella Gutiérrez y Muhs
We are soliciting academic papers written by academic women of color examining issues of racism, class bias, tokenism, and sexism. All contributions should explicitly address the question of socio-economic status/social class (both class privilege and class-based obstacles) and its intersections with race and gender. We welcome first person narratives and analytical papers that examine the underlying structural factors that perpetuate bias and exclusion as well as recommendations on how academic institutions might address these issues. Pseudonyms for authors are acceptable.
Submission Guidelines: Deadline for abstracts: August 1, 2008
