Mid-Week Reading: Academic Sexism, Adjunct Equality, Middle East

This is a terribly busy week, but there are three issues that I am following:

  1. Gender issues in academia. I was interested to see two different articles about issues of inequality and sexism in the U.S. and the U.K..

Selina Todd, “The academics tackling everyday sexism in university life” in The Guardian.

Aaron Clauset, Samuel Arbesman, Daniel B. Larremore, “Systematic inequality and hierarchy in faculty hiring networks,” from Science Advances.

  1. Today is National Adjunct Walkout Day. Two key posts worth reading on the topic:

Tiffany Kraft, “Faculty, Mobilize for Equity!” at Hybrid Pedagogy.

David Perry, “National Adjunct Walkout Day” at This Mess.

Claire Sadnar, “Dreaming of Russia in Ankara”

Audrey Kurth Cronin, “ISIS Is Not a Terrorist Group.”
