Kihl and Schull published in Gender & Society

Kihl, Lisa.jpgDr. Lisa Kihl, associate professor of kinesiology, and doctoral candidate Vicki Schull have co-authored an article to be published in the top-ranked women's studies journal, Gender & Society. The manuscript is titled, "'If a woman came in ... she would have been eaten up alive': Analyzing gendered political processes in the search for an athletic director."

Kihl and Schull, along with former Tucker Center visiting scholar Dr. Sally Shaw (University of Otago, New Zealand), critique the gendered political processes in the search for an athletic director following a merger between men's and women's intercollegiate athletic departments. Their research contributes to the understanding of the complexity of gender relations and provides further insight into the gendered political processes that inform leadership searches.

Gender & Society is also the seventh-best sociology journal.
