How to Integrate Women's Studies into the Traditional Curriculum.
Dinnerstein, Myra; And Others
Suggestions are presented on mainstreaming women's studies in the traditional curriculum. Directors of 17 curriculum projects involved in integrating materials on women into the college curriculum participated in a 3-day conference (Princeton, New Jersey, August 27-30, 1981). The material in the handbook is drawn from the experience of these projects. The document contains eight major sections: (1) Background: The "Mainstreaming" Movement; (2) How to Get Started: Using Current Campus Concerns; (3) How to Attract and Select Faculty Participants: Rewards and Resistance; (4) How to Design A Mainstreaming Project: Examples from the 17 Projects at the SIROW Conference; (5) How to Cope with Resistance; (6) How to Deal with Campus Politics; (7) How to Fund Projects: Funding Projects, Past and Present; and (8) How to Institutionalize Women's Studies Integration: Successful Strategies and Results. Appendices contain the list of participants at the SIROW conference, summaries of the 17 curriculum integration projects, and an annotated list of resources for curriculum integration. (RM)
