Many solitudes

March 11th, 2016

A professor emerita of anthropology at UBC, Elvi Whittaker has edited a collection of essays about isolating experiences of women employed in Canadian universities, Solitudes of the Workplace (McGill-Queen’s $37.95). It examines marginalization, uncertainty and segregation arising from the hierarchies in universities and gendered identities as it affects faculty and students, as well as support staff, senior administrators, researchers, non-academic administrators and contract teachers. “Frequently, official policy conflicts with everyday knowledge, especially when tenure and other status changes create troubling new realities.” 978-0-7735-4633-2
