How do we interrupt the current paradigms of sexism in the academy? How do we construct a new and inclusive gender paradigm that resists the dominant values of the patriarchy? And why are these agendas important not just for women, but for higher education as a whole? These are the questions that these extensive and rich analyses of the historical and contemporary roles of women in higher education— as administrators, faculty, students, and student affairs professionals—seek constructively to answer. In doing so they address the intersection of gender and women’s other social identities, such as of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, and ability. This book addresses the experiences and position of women students, from application to college through graduate school, and the barriers they encounter; the continuing inequalities in the rates of promotion and progression of women and other marginalized groups to positions of authority, and the gap in earnings between men and women; and pays particular attention to how race and other social markers impact such disparities, contextualizing them across all institutional types. Written collaboratively by an intergenerational group of women, men, and transgender people with different social identities, feminist perspectives, and professional identities— and who, in the process, built upon each other’s work—this volume constitutes a call to educators and scholars to work toward centering feminist and other marginalized perspectives in their practice and research in order to equitably address the evolving complexities of college and university life. Employing a wide range of theoretical lenses, examining a variety of models of practice, and giving voice to a diversity of personal experiences through narrative, this is a major contribution to the scholarship on women in higher education. This is a book for all women in the academy who want to better understand their experience, and to dismantle the remaining barriers of sexism and oppression—for themselves, and future generations of students.

'This book is refreshing, both as an addition to the general literature and as a text that considers cultural and social issues in studies relating to improving the situation of vulnerable people.... [T]his book will be a helpful, accessible and interesting resource for novice and experienced researchers alike in a number of fields' - Nurse Researcher 'Pranee Liamputtong has offered a well organized, clear and accessible work in Researching the Vulnerable...this book can offer very good guidance to the postgraduate student who is willing to focus in qualitative research methods, but also to an experienced researcher who may consider testing out its procedures or eventually is attempting to put into practice innovative qualitative research procedures' - Sociological Research Online Researching Vunerable People takes as its starting point the particular considerations and sensitivities of being a researcher faced with a subject group at the margins of society, and explores the ethical, practical and methodological implications of working with such groups. Pranee Liamputtong is an experienced textbook author, and in this book she attempts to explore qualitative methods using examples, drawn from around the world, from the wide variety of contexts that might count as 'researching the vulnerable'. Numerous salient points for the conduct of research within vulnerable groups of people, including ethical and moral issues, are considered, and discussed in the context of sensitive and innovative research methods.

The measurement of the significance and ‘impact’ of research is absolutely paramount in today’s academic world - as evidenced by the recent introductions of research assessment exercises in the UK, Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand. Material Inventions: Applying Creative Arts Research offers new and original ways of conceptualizing impact and innovation in creative arts research. This important book demonstrates how artistic research is capable of solving real-life problems and presenting transforming accounts of the world. By articulating the inventions, innovations, application and broader uptake of artistic research in and beyond the field of art, expert contributors advance the claim that artistic research constitutes a new paradigm or ‘successor science’ that impacts on interdisciplinary research and in diverse community and industry settings. This is a timely follow-up to Practice as Research: Approaches to Creative Arts Enquiry and will be indispensable to researchers, institutions and research assessment bodies.

This book explores the gendered nature of leadership and management. The contributors analyse issues such as management development and therapeutic cultures, expectations placed on women in the workplace, managing maternity and the gendered nature of workplace mistakes. The position of women in various sectors and areas of the politico-economic landscape is also considered. Topics discussed include: women in the boardroom; women in the small to medium size enterprise sector; support for female entrepreneurs; gender in the public sector; and, gender and the management of the European Commission. The book concludes by stating the business case for greater female representation in leadership and management, outlining some of the nuances in changing gender identities, and positioning the content within current macro political developments. As such, it will strongly appeal to academics and researchers in gender studies, policy studies, social science, business and management. Practitioners and consultants in the equal opportunities field will also find much to interest them in this book.

In »Der Name des Windes« erzählt Patrick Rothfuss die Geschichte von Kvothe, dem berühmtesten Zauberer seiner Zeit. Damit ist ihm ein Roman von so viel Einfallsreichtum und solch sprachlicher Kraft und Authentizität gelungen, dass er die gesamte Fantasyszene aufhorchen lässt. »Vielleicht habt ihr von mir gehört« ... von Kvothe, dem für die Magie begabten Sohn fahrender Spielleute. Das Lager seiner Truppe findet er verwüstet, die Mutter und den Vater tot - »sie haben einfach die falschen Lieder gesungen«. Wer aber sind diese Chandrian, die weißglänzenden, schleichenden Mörder seiner Familie? Um ihnen auf die Spur zu kommen, riskiert Kvothe alles. Er lebt als Straßenjunge in der Hafenstadt Tarbean, bis er auf das Arkanum, die Universität für hohe Magie aufgenommen wird. Vom Namenszauber, der ihn als Kind fast das Leben gekostet hätte, erhofft sich Kvothe die Macht, das Geheimnis der sagenumwobenen Dämonen aufzudecken. Im Mittelpunkt dieses Leseabenteuers steht ein großer Magier und leidenschaftlicher Wissenschaftler, ein Musiker, dessen Lieder die Sänger zum Weinen bringen ... und ein schüchterner Liebhaber. Mit Der Name des Windes legt Patrick Rothfuss den ersten Teil der Königsmörder-Chronik-Trilogie vor, der in den USA bei Kritikern und Fantasylesern begeistert aufgenommen wurde und schon bald einen der vorderen Plätze in der New York Times Bestsellerliste belegte. Der Bestseller-Autor Terry Brooks schreibt: »Der Name des Windes stellt das Debüt eines Autors dar, den wir lieber im Auge behalten sollten.« Das Magazin »The Onion« gibt den Lesern folgenden Rat: »Stellen Sie Der Name des Windes neben "Der Herr der Ringe" ins Regal und erwarten Sie den Tag, an dem beide in einem Atemzug genannt werden, vielleicht als Erste unter Gleichen.« 2007 wurde Patrick Rothfuss für seinen Roman »Der Name des Windes« mit dem Quill Award sowie dem Pulishers Weekly Award für das beste Fantasy-Buch des Jahres ausgezeichnet.
