Women as Leaders in Education: Succeeding Despite Inequity, Discrimination, and Other Challenges
full name / name of organization:
Jennifer L. Martin/Oakland University
Women as Leaders in Education: Succeeding Despite Inequity, Discrimination, and Other Challenges (working title), a new book published by Praeger, will bring together a multidisciplinary and multicultural discussion of issues women educators face, including differences in leadership styles, obstacles to advancement, and pay, benefit and resource inequity. This book will address themes of ethical decision making, authority, power and leadership, and conflict in organizational life. It will also discuss interconnections among equity issues: sex, race, class, age, sexual orientation, and disability.
Please read below for call for papers. I, Dr. Jennifer Martin, educator and Title IX advocate, will edit this volume. I am looking for scholarly chapters to include in this text dealing with issues that women educators (in K-12 and higher education) and educational leaders have faced pre and post Title IX. I am looking for a variety of contributors: K-12 practitioners and administrators, professors of education, feminist professors, Title IX and feminist advocates, etc. I will pay particular attention to issues of intersectionality, social justice, and the issue of teachers as public intellectuals when vetting proposals.
Because Praeger's primary market consists of public libraries, this book will be accessible and geared toward general readers looking to expand their knowledge and understanding of these topics. Secondary markets, such as academic libraries, scholars, students, and researchers will also be drawn to the array of topics covered.
Some topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
If you are interested in any of the above topics (or would like to propose your own topic as a contribution to this book) please write a proposal as soon as possible. Proposals may be sent to the editor at:

Proposal Guidelines: Send to Editor via Email
If you have questions on this CFP, or on the proposal guidelines, please contact me via email. Please submit your proposals as soon as possible for full consideration. The book will have approximately 13 chapters. Each chapter will be approximately 8,000 words. If your proposal is accepted, the manuscript due date is summer 2010. Contributors will receive a copy of the book.
