Generation X male faculty and all disciplines are welcomed to submit abstracts. We are currently in the process of securing a publisher for the project.

All topics will be considered, however, essays that examine personal experiences be they issues of class, race, marriage, divorce, sexuality, religion, life in the academy, personal politics, life post academia and or disabilities are particularly welcomed. Essays must be first person and about the personal life history of the author himself. Moreover, all contributors must have worked at some point in academia be it in an academic, administrative, consultant or adjunct faculty position etc…

Generation X is the demographic group of Americans born from 1965-1978. This is a unique generation on many levels with undoubtedly many provocative stories and insights to share with others.
