Higher Disparities: Contrasts in Female and Male Self-Reported Views of Academic Parenthood

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Recent research has characterized parenthood in the academy as a liability for the professional advancement of women while a strategic advantage for men. Much of the current research on the subject relayed through mass media analyzes the quantitative outcomes of academic parenthood in relation to completion of a terminal degree, securing employment, and professional advancement within the academy. Conversely, the lived experience of graduate students and junior faculty has not been extensively discussed in mass media settings. This paper examines the perceptions of male and female graduate student and junior faculty in several university settings of their experiences with academic parenthood. These perceptions are revealed through narrative interviews with participants. Narrative analysis is utilized in the effort to reveal differences and similarities between the sexes with parental experiences in respect to higher education. This research aims to illustrate a broader and more nuanced picture of academic parenthood through the inclusion of both graduate students and junior faculty accounts.
