Accent and the University: Accent as Pretext for National Origin Discrimination in Tenure Decisions.
Curkovic, Kristina D.
Journal of College and University Law, v26 n4 p727-54 Spr 2000
Argues that judicial deference to a university's denial of tenure based on an allegedly unclear accent may be unjust. Discusses: (1) the usual tenure process; (2) Title VII action and academic deference; (3) evidence that inherent bias against accents in the classroom hurts non-white instructors; and (4) proposed action for courts and universities.
