Description: At what price entry? Philosopher of education Jane Roland Martin contends that feminist scholars have traded in their idealism in order to gain a place in the academy. In Coming of Age in Academe, she looks at the ways that academic feminists have found themselves estranged from each other -- estrangement being the "membership fee" the academy exacts on all its members, feminist scholars in particular. Part one explores the chilly research climate for feminist scholars, education in the feminist text, the fear of refeminization, and the traps of sentimentalization and victimization. In part two, Martin likens the behavior of present-day feminist scholars to nineteenth-century immigrants to the United States and examines their assimilation into the world of work, politics, and the professions. She finds that when you look at higher education, you see how it becomes a brutal filter of women, and the education-gender system becomes a colligating concept. Part three focuses on brain drain, the academy's containment of women, Lysistrata in the classroom and beyond, and the feminist fika. In this rousing call to action, Martin concludes that the dissociation that the academy demands -- its "entrance fee" -- can only be stopped by radically reforming the gendered system on which the academy is based.
