Calling : essays on teaching in the mother tongue
While charting the author's growth as a feminist teacher, from her arrival at Kalamazoo College as a brand new Ph.D. through her first sabbatical, this provocative collection also wrestles with larger issues of contemporary campus life including sexual harassment, faculty politics, male vs. female development, and classroom pedagogy.These moving essays show teaching to be a powerful, dangerous intersection of lives at critical moments, and contribute to the picture of academe not as an "ivory tower", but as a world of conflict and change.
