Bridging Cultures: International Women Faculty Transforming the US Academy
Bridging Cultures explores the experiences of international women faculty as they acculturate to the US academy. In a series of memoirs shaped by multiple disciplinary perspectives, these women reflect on their gendered personal experiences as “ex-pat” faculty members and set their stories within the larger context of American higher education’s increasingly international character. Response pieces by scholars drawn from a range of fields and institutional settings situate this project within diverse frameworks. The response pieces will inform and educate faculty, students, and administrators interested in shaping the culture of the academy today. With an introduction focused on their interdisciplinary feminist methodology, an epilogue revisiting the collaborative strategies employed throughout their project, and a set of generative discussion questions, the editors provide numerous tools to support related research and teaching. They also provide a means for professional development for both faculty and administrators.
