Presumed Incompetent is a pathbreaking account of the intersecting roles of race, gender, and class in the working lives of women faculty of color. Through personal narratives and qualitative empirical studies, more than 40 authors expose the daunting challenges faced by academic women of color as they navigate the often hostile terrain of higher education, including hiring, promotion, tenure, and relations with students, colleagues, and administrators. The narratives are filled with wit, wisdom, and concrete recommendations, and provide a window into the struggles of professional women in a racially stratified but increasingly multicultural America.

Review:

Presumed Incompetent is an absolute must read for anyone who is thinking of entering academia, for junior faculty but also senior scholars alike . . . . it is crucial we learn from Presumed Incompetent and implement its recommendations in our positions of power and influence. --Kieu-Linh Caroline Valverde, The Feminist Wire

This compilation of personal counter stories, Presumed Incompetent, holds tremendous potential to transform the academy --Iris D. Ruiz, Reflections
