Elizabeth Allan (University of Maine), Susan Iverson (Kent State University) and Becky Ropers-Huilman (Louisiana State University) invite proposals for chapters to be included in an upcoming volume on the potential of feminist poststructural perspectives to enhance our understandings of assumptions underlying policy and practice in postsecondary education. The volume, in which Routledge has expressed interest during preliminary conversations, will include analyses within the context ofhigher education with a focus on policy broadly conceived (including diversity policy, gender equity policy, childcare policy, promotion and tenure policy, state and federal policy, and policy development processes etc.). The book seeks to include research at many institutional types (community colleges, liberal arts colleges, comprehensive universities, doctoral universities, on-line universities, etc.), especially as that research has particular implications for policy that affects the experiences of those in postsecondary education.
Abstracts of no more than 3-5 pages should include a clear description of the intended chapter and must explicitly articulate how feminist postructuralism informs the analysis or presentation. Full contact information should be included as well.
Abstracts received by date January 05, 2007 will be considered for inclusion. Please send abstracts via e-mail to Elizabeth Allan at: email@example.com
