About this product
- DescriptionThis comprehensive, encyclopedic review explores gender and its impact on American higher education across historical and cultural contexts. Challenging recent claims that gender inequities in U.S. higher education longer exist, the contributors-leading experts in the field-reveal the many ways in which gender is embedded in the educational practices, curriculum, institutional structures, and governance of colleges and universities. This work features the latest theories, scholarship, research, and debates related to gender and higher education, including institutional diversity; academic majors and programs; extracurricular organizations such as sororities, fraternities, and women's centers; affirmative action and other higher educational policies; and a range of theories-from liberal feminism to postmodern queer theory-that have been used to analyze and explain the ways in which gender in academe is constructed. Theoretically grounded and based on the newest research, Gender and Higher Education provides an excellent overview for students of higher education, gender studies, and sociology, as well as for anyone interested in the current state of scholarship and practice.
