Veiling and Reappearing: Gender Politics in Academic Professions
Author: Wang Jun Uploaded Time: 2017-06-07

Veiling and Reappearing: Gender Politics in Academic Professions extensively portrays the daily lives of women teachers in a research-based university where their veiled 'gender' identities reappear, and probes the dynamic relationships between their cognition of gender roles and experiences in the workplace. The book also analyzes the structural factors which lead to women teachers' marginalization and powerlessness. Ultimately, the author argues what has happened to women teachers is not the result of any personal encounter, but the fate of an academic group; simultaneously, it is a social culture imposing the fixed division of gender roles on women teachers.
