The Impact of Feminist Scholarship upon the Study of Higher Education: An Analysis of Two Higher Education Journals. ASHE Annual Meeting Paper.
Townsend, Barbara K.
This study examined 509 articles within the "Journal of Higher Education" (JHE) and "The Review of Higher Education" (RHE) for evidence of influence by feminist scholarship. The study covered the time periods of the late 1960's, the late 1970's, and the late 1980's. Findings are broken down and discussed within each time frame and include the following: (1) women, whether as topics of research, researchers, or simply as higher education faculty, student, or administrators were all but invisible in the literature of the late 1960's; (2) the presence of women became slightly more apparent in both journals during the late 1970's; and (3) the late 1980's shows a significant increase in articles involving women. The presence of women as scholars in each of the time sequences studied is also discussed, and reveals increasing numbers of articles in this area over the decades. Finally, feminist phase theory is examined through 16 articles which focused exclusively on women or on topics commonly associated with them. Contains 53 references. (GLR)
