About this product
- DescriptionWe thought the study of women would be a temporary phase; eventually we would all go back to our disciplines. -Gloria Bowles, From the Afterword Since the 1970s, Women's Studies has grown from a volunteerist political project to a full-scale academic enterprise. Women's Studies on Its Own assesses the present and future of the field, demonstrating how institutionalization has extended a vital, ongoing intellectual project for a new generation of scholars and students. Women's Studies on Its Own considers the history, pedagogy, and curricula of Women's Studies programs, as well as the field's relation to the managed university. Both theoretically and institutionally grounded, the essays examine the pedagogical implications of various divisions of kwledge-racial, sexual, disciplinary, geopolitical, and ecomic. They look at the institutional practices that challenge and enable Women's Studies-including interdisciplinarity, governance, administration, faculty review, professionalism, corporatism, fiscal automy, and fiscal constraint. Whether thinking about issues of academic labor, the impact of postcolonialism on Women's Studies curricula, or the relation between education and the state, the contributors bring insight and wit to their theoretical deliberations on the shape of a transforming field.
