Faculty Members’ Social Identities and Classroom Authority (2007)

“In this chapter we examine how the social group identities of faculty members are reflected in their pedagogical encounters and practices. More particularly, we consider how faculty members with different social group identities deal with two issues commonly faced by all faculty: questions about their subject matter expertise and questions about the authority of the faculty role. Both areas are often the grounds on which students covertly or overtly challenge faculty authority.”
