“Unsettling Relations”: Racism and Sexism Experienced by Faculty of Color in a Predominantly White Canadian University (2005)

ABSTRACT: This article is a qualitative investigation of the experiences of nine women of color in a predominantly White Canadian university. Although the sample size is small, this study underscores racism and sexism pervading in some contexts, situations, and relationships for women of color in academe. Minority instructors perceive racism as infusing most aspects of academic life such as curriculum design, evaluations, administrative support, and mainstream student reactions.
