The December, 2009 issue of Studies in the Humanities is seeking essay submissions for a special issue on the subject of "Theoretical Perspectives on Women in Higher Education.” The editors will cast their net widely: we will seek thesis-driven, innovative essays about women and their experience as students, administrators, and faculty in Normal Schools, colleges, seminaries, and universities that examine pedagogical, scholarly, and research practices in light of (but not to exclusive to) cultural, feminist, gender, historical, rhetorical, and socio-political epistemologies. Essays should have a solid theoretical foundation, and we especially look for those essays that explore past and present contexts of neo-liberal socio/political reform and responses to gender disparities in higher education.

Please submit essays of no more than 7-10 double-spaced pages in MLA format by electronic attachment that is compatible with Microsoft Word by October 1, 2009 to Dr. Theresa McDevitt, mcdevitt@iup and Dr. Rosalee Stilwell, stilwell@iup.edu.
