Elwood Watson is professor of history, African American studies and gender studies at East Tennessee State University. He is the author and co-author of a number of books and articles, including Outsiders Within: Black Women in the Legal Academy after Brown v. Board (2009), and is a blogger and columnist for Diverse Education, X/Y Online, BlackPast.org, and Your Black World.
Generation X Professors Speak is accessible for anyone currently involved in higher education, Generation X or not. From those in institutions suffering the adjunct instruction syndrome plaguing humanities departments throughout the country to the historical scholar attempting to gauge the emotional, physical, and sometimes spiritual toll of academic work in the second decade of the twenty-first century, this book explores issues that go beyond individuals born between 1965 and 1979.
