Juggling Higher Education Study and Family Life
Webber, Louise
Trentham Books
Women with families face particular challenges when they undertake Higher Education. Questions arise about coping with the demands of study, new family routines, and the changed identity when mother becomes student: Can I manage it all? How will my family react? Will they give me the time and support I need? The author, herself a mother and lecturer when she completed her postgraduate studies, draws on the stories of the women in her study as they negotiate support from their partners and families. Applying theoretical perspectives, she suggests practical and effective strategies for combining study and family life. This book is a valuable guide for women in similar situations, and will enhance the understanding of tutors, lecturers and policymakers. An index is included.
