Book Description

Examining common assumptions and routines through the lens of critical theory, the authors question several aspects of graduate education, including the conception of graduate students as institutional capital; institutionalized prejudice based on age, gender, sexual orientation, race and class; and competing power and value systems. The authors allow students to tell their own stories, thus humanizing the results of abuses generated by a flawed system. Finding a current exploitation of students unconscionable, Hinchey and Kimmel call for a new vision of graduate education, one in which students are valued and treated as unique and vibrant individuals


"Common assumptions and routines of graduate education are questioned, and institutional prejudice on the basis of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, and class is brought to light through the stories of graduate students." -- Higher Education Abstracts,
