Edited volume: Narratives of Gendered Abuse in Academia

updated: 
Monday, October 25, 2021 - 8:14am
Mary K Holland, SUNY New Paltz and Carrie Rohman, Lafayette College
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 1, 2022

The popularity of the Netflix Series The Chair seems to be tied to its hyperbolic depictions of faintly legitimate power struggles that circulate on contemporary college campuses. But in focusing on the slapstick character Bill Dobson (male, white, hopelessly romantic), the narrative offers a political feint that distracts from actual abuses of power in academic life, abuses that are often misogynistic. While the #MeToo movement as a cultural, feminist, and antiracist force has been slowly and steadily uncovering and altering landscapes of gendered harassment and abuse across our society, academia itself as an abusive culture has remained fairly immune to these critiques.
