No Rest For The Weary: The Weight Of Race, Gender, And Place Inside And Outside A Southern Classroom, Barbara Harris Combs

Clark Atlanta University Faculty Publications

In this article, I reflect on my lived experience as an African American woman teaching in the racialized and gendered context of a predominantly white institution (PWI) in the Deep South.

This study argued that the concept of assessment in radio/television/film production courses in higher education depends on reliability ...
