Book Description

The nature of academic institutions is inherently gendered. This is because higher education institutions (HEIs) do not operate in a void but, rather, are part and parcel of patriarchal social structures. This book offers a comprehensive presentation of the gendered and gendering academic career development. It explores various scholarly roles that academics face throughout their careers and how they are gendered in their nature. The book connects relevant literature on the topic with novel empirical studies to increase the understanding how gender is played in academia across different roles and different career stages. The empirical context is conducted in Central and Eastern Europe that sheds new light on the gendered and gendering nature in academia in the region. The book also offers propositions on how to undo gender academia to make it a more inclusive workplace for all. Dedicated for an academic reader employed in higher education institutions, particularly among those who are involved in the management of such institutions this volume will be of great interest to researchers, academics, and advanced students in the fields of human resource management, organizational studies, higher education, and gender studies.
