About this book


The Guide for Women in Religion is an indispensable resource for everyone from undergraduate students to emeritae professors involved in the field of religion. In the tradition of a Guide to the Perplexing: A Survival Manual for Women in Religious Studies that helped a generation of women break barriers, this work reflects the multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-disciplinary nature of the field. It is designed to encourage creative, collaborative approaches, and to help women avoid being coopted. Writers presume that teaching is but one career option with publishing, the non-profit sector, work in religious institutions and the like all good choices for which training in religious studies is useful. They offer guidance on how to handle graduate school, dissertation writing, job interviews, promotions, health care, retirement, on-line teaching, resumes, publications and much more. This guide is not for women only. Supportive male colleagues, hiring committees and departments will also want a copy for ready reference.
