A Community of Disagreement: Feminism in the University

Dr. Danielle Bouchard (Women's and Gender Studies) recently published A Community of Disagreement: Feminism in the University.  A close look at women’s placement and displacement in the academic setting, the book is part of the Counterpoints series, published by Peter Lang. According to the company, “Counterpoints publishes the most compelling and imaginative books being written in education today.”

Described by reviewers as provocative and compelling, the book examines “feminism’s relationship to what has become one of the central missions of the U.S. university: the management of difference." In short,  Dr. Bouchard’s book is a timely and valuable addition to the growing body of scholarship on the role of women in higher education.
