Thoughts about academe on International Women’s Day

Look into any academic scholarship and there you will find a white, bearded man from the 17th or 18th century with an opinion. How much time should be spent disproving the assumptions of yore?

That I never figured out. Thinking about that today..and dipping into my thesis and thinking about gender and assumptions about the past.

Beyond white male academe, what’s next?
