The case for a flexible work schedule for faculty has beenrepeatedly made, with one policy recommendation being part-timepositions for tenure-track/tenured faculty (PTTT). Despite some ofthe benefits of this approach for both faculty and institutions,the PTTT concept is the least implemented policy for facultyflexibility and is poorly understood. This report offers the firstcomprehensive treatment of PTTT, suggesting that this mode offlexibility enhances recruitment, retention, and engagement offaculty, while offering value-added productivity, planningpotential, and faculty loyalty for the institution. Herbers provides data that explore how a PTTT policy can lead tofaculty success and satisfaction across the lifespan of a career,and likewise offers analogies and examples of well-establishedpractices that administrators across institution types can adapt tocreate their own policies. Administrators and faculty will find theauthor’s policy recommendations, best practices, andsolutions to common challenges to be a roadmap for stimulatingchange in their institutions. This is the 5th issue of the 40th volume of the Jossey-Bass seriesASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitiveanalysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thoroughresearch of pertinent literature and institutional experiences.Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners andscholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with expertsproviding critical reviews of each manuscript beforepublication.

In this widely acclaimed landmark study, Joan Hoff illustrates how women remain second- class citizens under the current legal system and questions whether the continued pursuit of equality based on a one-size-fits-all vision of traditional individual rights is really what will most improve conditions for women in America as they prepare for the twenty-first century. Concluding that equality based on liberal male ideology is no longer an adequate framework for improving women's legal status, Hoff's highly original and incisive volume calls for a demystification of legal doctrine and a reinterpretation of legal texts (including the Constitution) to create a feminist jurisprudence.

Gender Justice and Legal Pluralities: Latin American and African Perspectives examines the relationship between legal pluralities and the prospects for greater gender justice in developing countries. Rather than asking whether legal pluralities are ‘good’ or ‘bad’ for women, the starting point of this volume is that legal pluralities are a social fact. Adopting a more anthropological approach to the issues of gender justice and women’s rights, it analyzes how gendered rights claims are made and responded to within a range of different cultural, social, economic and political contexts. By examining the different ways in which legal norms, instruments and discourses are being used to challenge or reinforce gendered forms of exclusion, contributing authors generate new knowledge about the dynamics at play between the contemporary contexts of legal pluralities and the struggles for gender justice. Any consideration of this relationship must, it is concluded, be located within a broader, historically informed analysis of regimes of governance.

Featuring forthright testimonials by women who are or have been mothers as undergraduates, graduate students, academic staff, administrators, and professors, Mothers in Academia intimately portrays the experiences of women at various stages of motherhood while theoretically and empirically considering the conditions of working motherhood as academic life has become more laborious. As higher learning institutions have moved toward more corporate-based models of teaching, immense structural and cultural changes have transformed women's academic lives and, by extension, their families. Hoping to push reform as well as build recognition and a sense of community, this collection offers several potential solutions for integrating female scholars more wholly into academic life. Essays also reveal the often stark differences between women's encounters with the academy and the disparities among various ranks of women working in academia. Contributors—including many women of color—call attention to tokenism, scarce valuable networks, and the persistent burden to prove academic credentials. They also explore gendered parenting within the contexts of colonialism, racism, sexism, ethnocentrism, ageism, and heterosexism.
