A Woman's Guide to Doctoral Studies - Diana Leonard

Open University Press, 2001, Paperback ..
Condition: Near Fine.

From the cover: “This guide is designed to help women — since they are less likely than men to be encouraged to do doctorates, are slower to put themselves forward, and tend to operate on the belief that (in academia at least) they will be judged solely on the quality of their work. Its aim throughout is to help women undertake and enjoy serious scholarly work whilst recognizing the wider ‘rules’ of the academic game. The situation in the UK is compared with that of North America and Australia, and the pros and cons of PhDs and the new professional doctorates are discussed. Thought provoking case studies of the diverse experiences of home and international, young and older, heterosexual and lesbian students across the disciplines make illuminating reading. This book is an essential read for women (and men) starting, midway through or finishing their doctorates, and has the most extensive discussion of vivas of any text on the market.”
