Discrimination in academia and the cultural production of intellectual cachet

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • In this Article, Annalise Acorn examines the unique features of discrimination against women in academia, a workplace that is primarily concerned with the cultural production of intellectual cachet and scholarly authority. Acorn argues that one's scholarly authority is an end product of collaboration by all members of academia, students, and colleagues alike, who make deeply private - and at times arbitrary - choices whether to withhold or extend participation and assistance in the creation of the intellectual aura. Acorn then explores ways in which this collective practice of the creation of intellectual cachet works to discriminate against women in academia.
