The Intersections of Race and Class for Women in Academia
Edited by: Grace Chang, Carmen G. González, Mary Romero, Yolanda Flores Niemann,
Angela Harris, and Gabriella Gutiérrez y Muhs

All contributions should explicitly address the question of socio-economic status/social class (both class privilege and class-based obstacles) and its intersections with race and gender.

Pseudonyms for authors are acceptable.
