Reconceptualizing Marginality from the Margins: Perspectives of African American Tenured Female Faculty at a White Research University.
Alfred, Mary V.
Western Journal of Black Studies, v25 n1 p1-11 Spr 2001
Presents a positive conceptualization of marginality based on the perspectives of five female, African American professors at a predominantly white university and the writings of African American scholars. The women positively defined their marginal status in white dominated institutions. This reconceptualization was manifested through such things as positive self-definition, black cultural identity, and rejecting externally constructed definitions of black womanhood. (SM)
