Candid Reflections on the Departure of Black Women Faculty from Academe in the United States
Chambers, Crystal Renee
Negro Educational Review, v62-63 n1-4 p233-260 2011-2012
Critical content analysis is used to identify content within blogs, exposing views within academe that reinforce and normalize racist, sexist, and interactively racist and sexist perspectives. The two themes explored here are unfairness and subjectivities within personnel processes and the qualifications of Black women faculty, as raised through a discussion of affirmative action in academe. Included within the discussion are antiracist, antisexist, and interactively anti-oppressive responses. Views expressed are an undercurrent in everyday campus life, which at times emerge as microassaults, microinsults, and microinvalidations. With relatively little recourse, Black women faculty members are subject to such attacks because of their race, gender, or combination thereof. As such, this study signals the need for greater attention in the academy to latent racism and sexism in their combinations. (Contains 2 tables.)
