Gabriella Gonzalez and Angela P. Harris are the co-editors of a book on the experiences of female faculty of color called Presumed Incompetent: The Intersections of Race and Class for Women in Academia. As Gabriella states, “The alienation that women of color experience as students at predominantly white universities only continues (and increases exponentially) as they become graduate students and faculty.”
On Wednesday, April 3, 2013, Gabriella Gutierrez y Muhs will deliver a keynote address at the Faculty Women of Color in Academia conference at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. The keynote, which is free and open to the public, will take place at 7:30 pm in the Illinois Ballroom of the I Hotel (1900 S. First Street, Champaign) and will be followed by a book signing.
