Abstract

What kinds of gendered obstacles do directors encounter in the academy? How do female directors counter sexism directed at faculty or students? Our panel brings together five creative writing program directors—three graduate and two undergraduate—to share the challenges of directing “while female.” Each will go beyond sharing these challenges to suggest specific ways directors can transcend sexism they might encounter in the academy and draw upon their strengths to enhance their programs.
