Ms. Mentor's Impeccable Advice for Women in Academia
In question-and-answer form, Ms. Mentor advises academic women
about issues they daren't discuss openly, such as: How does one
really clamber onto the tenure track when the job market is so
nasty, brutish, and small? Is there such a thing as the perfectly
marketable dissertation topic? How does a meek young woman become a
tiger of an authority figure in the classroom-and get stupendous
teaching evaluations? How does one cope with sexual harassment,
grandiosity, and bizarre behavior from entrenched colleagues?
Ms. Mentor's readers will find answers to the secret queries they
were afraid to ask anyone else. They'll discover what it really
takes to get tenure; what to wear to academic occasions; when to
snicker, when to hide, what to eat, and when to sue. They'll find
out how to get firmly planted in the rich red earth of tenure.
They'll learn why lunch is the most important meal of the day.
