Women in Catholic Higher Education: Border Work, Living Experiences, and Social Justice

Women in Catholic Higher Education: Border Work, Living Experiences, and Social Justice (Paperback)

£29.95
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

Women in Catholic Higher Education: Border Work, Living Experiences, and Social Justice examines the contemporary contradictions and tensions faced by women who teach and work in Catholic institutions of higher learning. Delving into discourse traditionally silenced by the Catholic hierarchy, this edited collection observes the ways in which patriarchal structures often hinder women's advancement within these institutions. The contributors describe their own conflicts and successes in their attempts to negotiate their academic careers and personal lives in the context of the clash between secular and Catholic patriarchal values. In their critical analysis, they extrapolate from their particular experiences and suggest concrete steps toward social justice for women in Catholic higher education. The risk-taking and creative thought inaugurated here by editors Sharlene Hesse-Biber and Denise Leckenby will undoubtedly serve as a model for other scholars fully engaged, both as professionals and as social individuals, in careers and lives on Catholic campuses.
