Description

Women Writing the Academy is based on an extensive interview study by Gesa Kirsch that investigates how women in different academic disciplines perceive and describe their experiences as writers in the university. Kirsch’s study focuses on the writing strategies of successful women writers, their ways of establishing authority, and the kinds of audiences they address in different disciplinary settings. Based on multiple interviews with 35 women from five different disciplines and four academic ranks, this is the first book to systematically explore the academic context in which women write and publish.
