Abstract

Class is a changing, challenging, and tricky problem as questions of money, access, education, race, and culture interweave to form layers of privilege and discrimination. For women in religious studies, it is important to realize that academic institutions and many related settings in publishing, library work, and so forth are organized as if white upper-middle-class ways were normative. This involves everything from who can afford to go to graduate school to what fork to use at a faculty dinner, from what your stationery looks like to whether you can pay back your student loans without taking a corporate job.
