Sotirin, Patty; Goltz, Sonia M. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
We employ a feminist phenomenological methodology to explore the lived meaningfulness of the academic dual career. We contend that university approaches to resolving the "problem" of dual career fail to address partners' long-term commitments and shared challenges. Following an analysis of focus group interviews with dual career academic…

Parker, Tara L.; Neville, Kathleen M. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
Due to the underrepresentation of African American teachers and college faculty, students have limited to no interaction with Blacks as authority figures in the classroom. When White students in particular face African American faculty in class, they often exhibit negative attitudes and inappropriate behavior. Using racial identity development and…

Cabrera, Nolan L. – Review of Higher Education, 2018
Critical Race Theory (CRT) from its inception was not intended to be a theoretical framework, but rather a theorizing counterspace for scholars of color to challenge and transform racial oppression. Despite this context, the author demonstrates through a critical literature review that CRT is generally applied as a theoretical framework in higher…

Poon, OiYan A.; Segoshi, Megan S. – Review of Higher Education, 2018
Few studies have focused on the role of Asian Americans in influencing how race is understood in affirmative action debates.

Informed by racial formation theory, this critical discourse analysis of…

Richards, David A. R.; Awokoya, Janet T.; Bridges, Brian K.; Clark, Christine – Review of Higher Education, 2018
Critical Race Theory contends that institutions codify and sustain racial inequalities even absent explicitly racist motives or actions. College ranking systems perpetuate such institutional racism by socially constructing minority-serving institutions (MSIs) as less valuable and prestigious. By assigning greater worth to criteria favoring more…

Persistently negative stereotypes of college students' parents are biased toward parents from privileged backgrounds and reflect privileged practices that operate from a color-blind and class-blind ideology.

Hou, Ya-Wen; Lee, Che-Wei; Gunzenhauser, Michael G. – Review of Higher Education, 2017
Since the 1960s, student evaluation of teaching (or SET) has been prevalent in higher education and frequently controversial (Benton & Cashin, 2014; Pounder, 2007; Valsan & Sproule, 2008). Although it originated in the Anglo-American context, SET is now used worldwide (Kulik, 2001; Spooren, Mortelmans, & Thijssen, 2012). SET is an…

Ostenson, Joseph A.; Clegg, Joshua W.; Wiggins, Bradford J. – Review of Higher Education, 2017
We argue that academic life is increasingly giving way to forces of industrialization and that many of the problems confronting higher education arise within this transformation. We discuss how a culture of standardization has led to academic monocultures; how faculty autonomy has been subverted by topdown management structures; how locally based…
