Transforming Scholarship is a user-friendly work of practical guidance and inspiration for supporting a student's interest in a Women's Studies degree. Berger and Radeloff use empirical evidence to help students with the major barriers they face when exploring Women's Studies: the negative response a student often faces when announcing to the world that he or she is interested in Womenas Studies; and the perceived lack of employment and career options that supposedly comes with graduating with a Women's Studies degree. This book will support students to think critically about what they know, how to demonstrate what they know, and how to prepare for life both personally and professionally after the degree. Transforming Scholarship is a practical guide for students interested in womenas and gender studies that targets advanced undergraduates who have a firm connection to the discipline. This book is ideal for womenas and gender capstone courses, and for those who have finished their degree and need a resource to assist in conceptualizing the answers to the question qWhatas next?q This second edition of Transforming Scholarship focuses on areas that undergraduates might want integrate into their womenas and gender studies education: study abroad, civic engagement projects, internships, independent studies, and honors theses. It includes exercises to help flesh out talents, passions, and skills, and how to link them to employment, information about the diversity of employment opportunities (and further professional training) available, and a plan to help prepare for graduation. It also delves into how to live a feminist life after graduation, including activism after college, building and sustaining feminist communities, and feminist parenting. The authors have also added new qPoint of Viewq boxes throughout the book, where scholars focus on contemporary issues and deepen a studentas understanding of the organizations and individuals fighting to end sexist oppression.YOUR INHERITANCE AS A STUDENT OF WOMENa#39;S AND GENDER STUDIES In one of your WGST classes you have probably read the well-known and anthologized essay by poet, essayist, and feminist Adrienne Rich that discusses anbsp;...
