An important book for academics to read

Gutiérrez y Muhs, Gabriella, Yolanda Flores Niemann, Carmen G. González, and Angela P. Harris. “Presumed incompetent: The intersections of race and class for women in academia.” University Press of Colorado (2012).

This is an amazing book. It’s quite long, so it took some commitment to finish it. I recommend it for women BIPOC, but I also recommend it for everyone who is interested in the academy. I think I should read the last chapter a couple of times, and consider how I am called to change the world.

There is actually a second volume, but I don’t yet have access to it. If that becomes possible, I am all in.

I read this because I am going to be a new book proposal. The topic is disabled faculty and multiple identities.
