Gendered Career Trajectories in Academia in Cross-national Perspective
Renata Siemieńska, Annette Zimmer
Barbara Budrich-Esser, 2007 - Education - 383 pages
What are the academic career options for women in various European countries? What has changed? Does the glass ceiling still exist? In a comparative perspective, contributors from different countries provide answers to these questions. By investigating the interrelationship between strategy and structure, the articles in this study focus on the interconnectedness between the institutional environment of systems of higher education and the strategic behavior, aspirations, hopes, and desires of female academics. The book examines how such systems impact those women looking back on their career path, those just starting to think about a career in academia, or those on their way to applying for a leadership position at a university.
