The Language of Exclusion: The Poetry of Emily Dickinson and Christina Rossetti, Sharon Leder, with Andrea Abbott

Where to Buy: amazon.com

This approach to two brilliant poets, whose lives almost exactly overlapped, shows they have been wrongly detached from the political issues and reform movements of their day. The approach releases them from the prison of their private selves and demonstrates their poetic responses to public events in their age.

“People in the literacy field may be interested in approaching this book as a model for analyzing women’s writing within a societal and historical context,” Janice Lavery, Canadian Women’s Studies, cws.journals.yorku.ca

Post Holocaust Generations in Dialogue
Edited by: Sharon Leder and Milton Teichman

The essays in this collection represent the writings of educators on the Holocaust who presented papers at the 29 th Annual Scholars’ Conference on the Holocaust and the Churches 1999. The essays respond to questions that continue to mystify the intelligence and the imagination: How could the genocide have taken place in the heart of “civilized” Europe? Why did the Vatican not go on public record against the victimization of Jews and other targeted groups? To what extent were groups other than Jews victimized? In the post-Holocaust era, What do interviews of perpetrators yield about breaking through repression and denial? What do interviews of women survivors yield about the formation of surrogate families in the camps? What type of dialogues are taking place among Holocaust scholars, Holocaust survivors, and the students who are learning from them?

A Publication of the National Women's Studies Association
Volume 19, Number 3

Edited by members of Feminists Against Academic Discrimination (FAAD), Ines Shaw, Sharon Leder, and Betty Harris.

This special issue of the NWSA Journal (Vol. 19, Number 3, Fall 2007) focuses on several key challenges women faculty face in higher education―obtaining tenure-track positions and tenure; contending with gender and racial prejudice and biases that foster inequality and inequity in treatment, recognition's, and rewards; advancing through the academic ranks on a timely basis; breaking the academic glass ceiling by reaching the rank of full professor; and achieving parity in representation at different ranks. . .

The authors in this volume . . . offer various analyses and solutions for these and many other problems and challenges, suggesting ways for the academy to welcome, retain, tenure, promote and equitably reward women faculty.
