Presumed Incompetent(Utah State University Press, 2012) examines the intersecting roles of race, gender, and class in the working lives of women faculty of color. The book was co-edited by two Seattle University faculty, College of Arts and Sciences Professor Gabriella Gutiérrez y Muhs and Law School Professor Carmen Gonzalez, along with Senior Vice Provost and Psychology Professor Yolanda Flores Niemann at the University of North Texas, and critical race theorist Law Professor Angela P. Harris at the University of California, Davis
Presumed Incompetent features personal narratives and qualitative empirical studies by more than 40 authors. Included are chapters by Arts and Sciences English Professor Mary-Antoinette Smith, Women and Gender Studies director, and Political Science Professor Connie Anthony, as well as Law School Professors Dean Spade and Deirdre Bowen.
“The narratives are filled with wit, wisdom, and concrete recommendations,” said Gutiérrez y Muhs. “They provide a window into the struggles of professional women in a racially stratified but increasingly multicultural America.”
Gutiérrez y Muhs directs the Diversity, Citizenship and Social Justice Core Track and teaches in the department of Modern Languages and Cultures as well as Women and Gender Studies.
