Tenure Tensions: Out in the Enchanted Forest
Tyler, Jo A.
New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, v24 n2-4 p38-43 2010
The tenure track in higher education represents a path shrouded in a fair degree of mystery. This essay provides the perspective of a middle-aged, second-career tenure track faculty member on the vagaries of progressing down the track as an out lesbian. Three dialectics that build tension into the process--covering-creating, evaluation-liberation, and alienation-authenticity--are discussed.
