Inside the Ivory Tower: Narratives of women of colour surviving and thriving in British academia
 
 
This book is centred on the perspectives, experiences and career trajectories of women of colour in British academia. It reveals a space dominated by whiteness and patriarchy, in which women of colour must develop strategies for survival and success. The contributors explore how their experiences are shaped by race and gender and how racism manifests in day-to-day experiences in the academy, from subtle microagressions to overt racialized and gendered abuse. The autoethnographies touch on common themes such as invisibility and hypervisibility, exclusion and belonging, highlighting intersectional experiences. This is a must-read for students, academics, schools, colleges, trade unions and organizations - and anyone with an interest in equality.The sequel to this is 'Transforming the Ivory Tower: Models for gender equality and social justice' (2020).
