NWSA has just released new guidelines
for tenure and promotion in women's and gender studies.
The statement notes that:
too often terms like 'rigor' and 'excellence' mask narrowly conceived evaluative measures tied to systems of power that have and continue to exclude white women and people of color from the tenured or full professor ranks.
With these guidelines, The National Women's Studies Association Field Leadership Working Group intends to both aid candidates in navigating these barriers while calling for change in institutional practices.
