Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungAn original and highly subversive critique of the academy by women affiliated with universities and colleges across Canada, The Madwoman in the Academy explores topics familiar to women working in academia around the world: the clash between family and work, the politics of academe, and the rifts between an academic career and political activism. Contributors offer writings in a wide range of genres, including personal essays, poetry, short stories, dialogues, and other innovative formats, daring to confront their experiences with energy, anger, wit, and humour. Ranging from the playful to the painful, The Madwoman in the Academy brings you names well known to literary communities alongside new but feisty voices that will forever change readers' ideas about the relationship between women and the academy.
