Overview

Transforming Scholarship is a user friendly guide of practical guidance and inspiration for supporting a student's interest in a W WW W omen's Studies degree. It focuses on three of the major barriers students face when exploring Women's Studies. The first is a lack of awareness that Women's Studies constitutes an academic field. The second barrier is the negative response a student often faces when announcing to the world that he or she is interested in Women's Studies. The third barrier regards the perceived lack of employment and career options of graduating with a Women's Studies degree. This book will support students to think critically about what they know, how to demonstrate what they know, and how to prepare for life both personally and professionally after the degree.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is suitable as a course textbook and indispensable for women's and gender studies programs. It is a necessary acquisition for academic libraries. Summing Up: Essential. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers."—CHOICE, G. M. Herrmann, SUNY College at Cortland, USA

"Direct, clear, compelling, this volume could not be more articulate in exploding every myth associated with this transformative field. This volume is a must for an introductory women’s studies course through to a capstone for WS majors; it both orients those new to the field, and provides excellent concrete advice for how to move from the college campus into the world."—Judith A. Howard, Sociology, University of Washington, USA

"Transforming Scholarship will help students to think through the history and significance of the field of Women’s and Gender Studies, guide them in answering challenging questions about themselves and their major or minor, and provide support and information about the job search and the ways they want to change the world. Rest assured that all Women’s and Gender Studies majors at my school will be given a copy of this text"—Alison Piepmeier, Women’s and Gender Studies, The College of Charleston, USA

"What can you do with a major in women’s studies?" How many times have I heard that question from students and parents! Thank goodness Michele Berger and Cheryl Radeloff have given us a thoroughly researched, accessible answer to that question. I’d highly recommend this book as required reading for first-year college students or as a great graduation gift for high school seniors interested in gender issues."—Susan M. Shaw, Women’s Studies, Oregon State University, USA

"If you have ever wondered what someone can do with a women’s and gender studies degree, Transforming Scholarship is the book for you. Michele Berger and Cheryl Radeloff have assembled an invaluable resource for both teacher and students that provides practical and theoretical insights into this evolving and dynamic field."—Anne Lacsamana, Women’s Studies, Hamilton College, USA

"...a practical and valuable handbook for current and prospective majors and minors in women and gender studies and for the people who care about them."—Sherri L. Barnes, University of California, Santa Barbara, Feminist Collections Volume 32, Numbers 3-4
