As women of color faculty continue to chart pathways into university administration, they enter a space that can be isolating and, in many instances, without mentorship. This one-day workshop is designed to provide women of color faculty who are either entering or considering higher education administration the opportunity to hear and be in conversation with experienced women of color administrators from a diverse representation of institutions.

History of Education Society Outstanding Book Award
This award recognizes the most outstanding book on the history of education published during the previous year.

Only books copyrighted in 2017 are eligible for consideration for the 2018 prize.
Criteria used to evaluate the books include:
In her article “Scales of Aggregation: Prenational, Subnational, Transnational,” Wai Chee Dimock asks some important questions “On what scale should we study the transnational? How does it mesh with the scale of the nation-state? How does it act upon the latter-and how is it in turn acted upon as a competing as well as a complementary regime of regulation?” Dimock recognizes that the transnational is in a dialogic relationship with the national. This view, however, seems to invite a vertical interpretation of this relationship.
Latino fatherhood and paternal figures are ever present in literature, film, and television, yet there is a lack of scholarly attention on their representation. Research has largely focused on Latina/Chicana motherhood and maternal figures. The purpose of this edited collection, titled "Latino Fatherhood: Papá in Popular Narrative," is to address this major gap in Latinx cultural studies by investigating how Latino fatherhood is defined, represented, and challenged in literature, film, and television.
